Parenting Adopted Kids with Challenging BehaviorSometimes adopted children will have experienced abuse, neglect, trauma, or prenatal exposure to alcohol or drugs, all of which can influence how a child behaves. Adoptive parents are faced with learning what causes their child to behave the way she does and what they can do to help her cope.
