tips to create a bond with your pre-teen and teens

How well does your family communicate? Do you have pre-teens or teenagers in the home that seem to be pulling away from you? I was going through some difficult times with my oldest daughter, who was 13 at the time. She was secluding herself from the family, and it seemed to be a sign that there was something more going on with her. I decided that it was time for the entire family to begin seeing a relationship counselor. We learned so many things that helped us recreate the relationship that we had when the kids were younger. Find out about the tools we were given and tips to create a strong bond with your pre-teens and teens.

3 Things You Need To Know About Placing Your Child For Adoption

If you are dealing with an unplanned pregnancy you might be wondering what to do. One of the best options out there is adoption. There are so many amazing people that are hoping to adopt, and a large number of birth mothers will tell you that adoption is a spiritual and amazing experience for both involved. Here are some things you should know about adoption.

1. The Birth Mother Can Have Control Over Where Her Child Is Placed

You as the birth mother is in control of your child's future. You might have a specific idea of what you want for your child. Perhaps you want them to be the first child in a home of parents who have waited and waited for a baby, but for reasons beyond their control are unable to have children. Or you might want your child to be part of a larger family, and place the child in a home where there are already children.

If you go with an adoption agency you can look through profiles and even interview and meet potential adoptive families. This will help you to determine the right choice for your child.

2. The Birth Mother Can Continue To Have Contact With The Child If Desired

Open adoptions are very common. There are many people who prefer to have an open adoption and it can be beneficial for everyone involved. There are many children who grow up with their birth mother as a part of their life. The birth mother plays a role like an aunt. They are present for birthday parties, special occasions, and have a close relationship with the child. There are other situations where the birth mother prefers not to have any contact. In that case, it can be something where the mother is able to cut ties with the family and only resume contact, if desired, later in life. The birth mother has a lot of say in this relationship.

3. Medical Expenses Will Be Covered Through The Agency

One of the biggest concerns of a birth mother is the medical treatment for the pregnancy. If you choose to place your child for adoption the agency will help to cover the expenses of the pregnancy so that you don't have to worry about the financial aspect. Instead, you just focus on finding your child the best situation, and keeping yourself healthy.

By understanding these things you can determine if adoption is right for you.
