Some New Parenting Books to Help the Adoptive, Foster Care (or any!) Parenting Journey

Two new resources for adoptive and foster parents have hit the Web (and the shelves) and include the work of Kinship Center experts.

The Foster Parenting Toolbox covers topics from newborns to teens and everything in between for not only foster parents, but also those who work with foster parents: case workers, social workers, judges, CASA's, GAL’s and others. Three Kinship Center professionals are among the contributors.

Edited by Kim Phagan-Hansel, the editor of Fostering Families Today Magazine, the book features more than 100 contributors who have helped weave a stunning tapestry of advice specifically for foster parents and the professionals and case workers who are on their team. This 464-page book is an extension of the trainings offered by individual states. It’s a top of the nightstand resource that offers today’s foster parents access to a wealth of useful information from professionals in the field and successful foster parents in the trenches. This is a book you won’t read all at once, but come back to again and again.


101 Parenting Tools: Building the Family of Your Dreams, is by Kinship Center therapist Ron Huxley, LMFT, who also hosts the popular blog. Tired of time-out? Yelling and counting to three not working for you? Parents can have a whole toolbox of parenting ideas with this power packed resource. This 53-page ebook gives an A-Z guide on how to manage the toughest parenting problems. Each tool lists the age of the child and the parenting style it is best suited for. This book will help you take back control of your home today!
