The Money Is In The Drawer, Or Is It? Thoughts About Stealing
We all know what the ultimate consequence is when people take things which do not belong to them. This ison the back of my mind when I get a call from my child's teacher who found a banknote in his pocket, or when I dig out his pockets and toys I have never seen roll out. When I doubt myself if biscuits I had purchased yesterday are missing. Is it conscious stealing, or just an act of a toddler inside the delayed child, or the effects of neglect? One thing is sure: it is a bit of everything, but there is a problem if your money goes missing, regardless of the reason.

Difficulties with socialization and peer interaction in older internationally adopted children
By teachers' and parents' admission, too many internationally adopted children are less socially successful than their age counterparts. Socialization implies accepting, either consciously or subconsciously, the values, attitudes, norms, social roles and styles of interaction that are prevalent in the group. In this article I discuss difficulties of IA children in the process of gaining the knowledge, social skills, and appropriate language that allow for integration into a peer group.
Consequences and discipline in an internationally adopted child's upbringing
A consequence is a natural fallout of a person's choice, action or inaction. It differs from punishment in that a punishment is a retribution. A punishment is "getting back" at someone, trying to hurt them physically or emotionally in the hope that they will behave as we want them to behave in the future. It is much easier to learn from natural consequences than from punishment, as punishment makes people afraid to do something, but not necessarily agree that their action was wrong; and it also conveys the idea that hurting another person is OK.

Getting the Kids to Listen: Danny the Dragon Author Offers Some Tips
Aren't kids supposed to have problems listening to their parents? Aren't they, after all, just kids? I asked children's author, researcher, and humanitarian Tina Turbin (http://TinaTurbin.com), author of the Danny the Dragon (http://DannyTheDragon.com) children's series and mother of three grown children, about getting kids to listen. "Teaching kids to listen can be a process, but in the end it's entirely possible to have kids who listen to you, and in fact, this is actually how things should be," Tina says.
