The Wall
The Wall
Why do adopted children need a different
kind of parenting?
All children have physical and emotional needs.
How these needs are fulfilled dictates a child’s
development.
The Wall is based on an exercise from our parenting
programme, Parenting Our Children.
Our needs start from birth, and we look to our
parents to fulfil them...
As we grow, many of these remain, but we also
develop new ones...
By the age of two, new social and developmental
needs become evident...
When our needs are met, development and a sense
of self are encouraged.
The wall of a healthy child may look like this.
Most adopted children have experienced
some level of trauma.
This may have been caused by abuse or neglect in
their early lives.
They will have been separated from their birth
families
They will have spent time in the care system,
sometimes with more than one carer.
All this will have had an effect on their development
and their ability to attach to their new parents.
How might their wall look?
A neglected child would have rarely or never
been cuddled
Their milk might have been infrequent or
inconsistent
They may have received little or no parental
stimulation
Their parents would not have attuned with
them
Because of this, they might struggle to make
friends
Their play would be unsupervised
They struggle to feel part of a family unit
An abused child might play in an unhealthy
way
They may not receive encouragement,
or even believe the encouragement they do get
They may struggle to trust others
They might experience no or few boundaries
on their behaviour
All this can cause problems at school
They can fear being left alone
Even though their birth family may love them dearly,
the expression of that love might be infrequent or
even unhealthy
There are over seventy thousand children in
the UK care system at any one time.
Many will return home and their birth families will be
supported to care and parent them.
Many will stay in foster care or other types of placement.
But about 5% of those children will be placed for adoption
because it is not possible for them to return to their birth
families.
Their average age at adoption will be just
over 4 years old.
The lives of adopted children in their new families
are affected by the hurt and loss in their past lives
We are the leading charity providing support, awareness and
understanding for those parenting or supporting children
who cannot live with their birth parents.

Their average age at adoption will be just over 4 years old.
