Health Tip: Talk to Your Youngster About Adoption

(HealthDay News) -- If you are a parent of a young adopted child, it may be time to talk about the child's birth story.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests:

  • Be honest, and make your explanation simple and direct.

  • Tell the child that he or she was born to other parents who could not take care of the youngster.

  • Explain to the child why you chose to adopt him or her.

  • Talk about how much you and your spouse wanted the child.

  • Briefly explain the adoption steps you went through.
