Health Tip: Parenting Adopted Teens

(HealthDay News) -- Teenagers often struggle with questions of identity. For adopted teens, the struggle may be harder than it is for their non-adopted peers.

When dealing with questions of identity, the Children Welfare Information Gateway suggests:

  • Talk to your teen about his or her birth parents.
  • Develop a lifebook of personal history.
  • Connect the youth to cultural, ethnic and spiritual activities.
  • Provide opportunities to interact with other adopted persons.
  • Recognize similarities between you and your adopted children.
