    This is an amazing books for foster and adoptive families. It (finally) hits the nail on the head by realizing that children who have come from trauma backgrounds are dealing with different issues. Therefore, the parenting needs to be different, and moreover lots of early intervention would be very helpful. The misbehaviour of these kids is not the fault of the parents. Unfortunately, it is not necessarily the fault of the children either. A very complex situation indeed.
