Do you find that you have to look for other alternatives than perhaps the way you were raised? Any stories on "Creative Discipline" for an adopted child? (or foster, if you have them.)
There are 7 pages, so when you read through to the bottom, click on "Next article in series". I thought it gave a lot of insight as to why traditional methods are ineffective.
I read the first couple of pages and was disappointed that it seemed to assume that children adopted at birth wouldn't have the same issues and that it only pertained to children adopted from Foster care.
But yes, I do think that adoptee children should be disciplined differently. I think everything that's done with an adoptee child should be considered carefully, such as trying to do everything within your power to avoid putting your child in child care and being obsessively vigilant about picking your child up on time. Being late to pick up a child from soccer practise can cause extreme stress in an adoptee.
