I thought I was basically prepared to parent our three adopted children...after all I had already been successfully parenting three boys for 6 years. And even better - the girls would come and be the same age as the boys so I figured that would be easy because we would have just three ages to deal with.
I had a basic understanding that our girls would be "behind" a bit. I think everyone gets that. The problem was I couldn't always identify what was from being "behind" and what was plain old naughty behavior. I used the boys to measure where they should be and how they should behave. They either were not catching up or just being stinkers. Lots of people gave me advice based on what their kids did at different ages, but that just didn't fit...nothing worked. It was like I was hitting my head against a brick wall. Some days my girls could do what I asked them to do and do well in situations or with other children, but many other days they just failed miserably. Eventually, it just felt very purposeful and a big void began to form between us, which made me feel like a crappy Mom.
The reality is that I was wrong; well, I just didn't know what the truth really was. The struggles I was having were not based out of defiance; they were based out of my not parenting my children at their emotional age. I was really setting them up to fail. I needed to do it differently... We needed new tools and techniques that worked!
