This sensitive, practical handbook is designed to support adopted children and teenagers and their families. An adopted child may well have suffered abuse or neglect- he or she will have experienced separation, loss, and inconsistent parenting. This early trauma and upheaval is often expressed in emotional and behavioural problems, which are especially difficult for the child and his or her parents to cope with during the teenage years. Drawing on both firsthand experience and research, the author presents strategies to improve adopted children's patterns of behaviour, in what to them is a hostile world. The situations covered include sleep problems- anger, agression and violence- lying and stealing- staying out late and running away- addictive behaviours and self harm- impulsiveness and risk taking- money issues- sex- suicide and compulsive eating disorders.

    However other comments stated "who" as the correct form.

    Thank you for the info. I havefound it really helpful. This is prob a really naive question, but do any of these web builders allow you to add Amazon as an affiliate?

      There is a membership widget called Sentry Login that creates a paid membership function for Squarespace (or Wix or Weebly). Check them out (I've never used them before though).

      I think the most important part, if you are okay with the extra cost of getting your own domain name, is to find a website builder in which you are comfortable in using and that it has the tools to help you build what you want to build. So if you think Squarespace can do this (after trying them out first of course), I personally won't let the domain name issue stop me from using them.

    No web building experience here, and have a rather simple concept in mind. Wondering if SquareSpace is the best option for us.
