W.I.S.E. Up

When it comes to handling questions and comments about adoption and foster care, kids need to be empowered to decide how they want to respond. This course will help parents teach these skills to the children in their homes. For children in transracial or transcultural families, these intrusive questions can begin as early as age three: “Why don’t you look like your mom?” For others, the questions come later: “Why were you adopted?” and “Where are your real parents?” When the questions begin, W.I.S.E. Up! helps with the answers.
