For parents and adoptees that are having a difficult time establishing a solid healthy relationship, it is critical to seek services for the overall health of the family. Typically, these stressful relationships do not get easier without intervention.
Wellness counseling can offer parents and children a starting place for clarifying roles, rules and responsibilities. The tasks of daily life often need to be modified and then modeled within the home environment. It is also necessary for the parents to understand and acknowledge the enormous loss the child has experienced prior to adoption. This obvious and often overlooked fact can
open up the doors to patience and acceptance for everyone involved.
These relationships are often complicated and seem unmanageable. With
the willingness of parents and child, wellness counseling can help align and strengthen this relationship.
