Five Things: A Tiny Handbook For
Adoptive Families

A Free Trauma-Informed Parenting Resource

Five things is a wonderful resource for foster/adoptive parents and those who plan to be. Especially those of us with biological children who think we know how to parent--we this need this booklet!  We come to the table with one set of parenting tools that have worked in the past, but once we're at the foster/adoption table, soon realize we brought the wrong tools. Five Things is a helpful and handy resource for the parenting journey. - Sandra Flach, Orphans No More Podcast ★★★★★

About Kathleen Guire

I’m Kathleen Guire, mother of seven, four through adoption, former National Parent of the Year, author, teacher, and speaker. But more important than any of those things, I’m a parent just like you. I know what it’s like to raise kiddos who have experienced trauma. I used to feel as if I was the only one struggling and because I felt that way, I isolated myself.  I don’t want you to feel alone in your parenting journey, so grab a cup of coffee and join me on the podcast, articles, e-courses,  on the pages of my books, and let’s become trauma-informed together!
