Every parent should seriously consider the idea of adopting a child in order to weigh all the pros and cons. Psychologist, neuropsychologist Natalya Naumova told FAN how future adoptive dads and mothers need to behave with a baby, and also about whether genetics will affect his future.
The expert believes that the most important thing that couples who decide to take a child into their family need to do is to clearly understand that the baby will not be a “picture”, he will have his own shortcomings.
- He has already experienced stress, since he was abandoned by his biological parents. And such a repeated plot in his life can become fatal. Children are very upset when they are returned to the orphanage. This should not be allowed, - explained Natalya Naumova.
The expert noted that you need to gradually get to know a new family member and get used to it. First, you can try the so-called guest dating option. It implies that the baby can be taken home for the weekend. And only after understanding that he is comfortable with him, his shortcomings can be accepted, he can be taken home for good.
