Teenagers are complex beings, and need to be handled sensibly. Being a parent of a teenager is a tough job, due to the oodles of responsibility that comes along with it. During teenage, children develop their own identity and try to become independent. They are morally and emotionally quite vulnerable at this age. If you are a parent of an adopted teenager, the situation becomes even more complex. Each adopted teen has varying degree of information about his adoptive parents, time of adoption and contacts with other family members, which affects their development differently. As adoptive parents, you must understand the child’s perception and point of view, to completely understand how the adoption issues might affect his development during the teenage years.
