I am just wondering at what age should parents tell their child he is adopted. For one of the few times in my life, I have no answer to this one. What do you think? What age is the best time to tell your child he is adopted?

The correct answer would be it varies of course.

For instance when the child is of an obvious different ethnic than the adoptive parents, soon enough he will get questions from his friends and will be asking the questions also.

One thing is certain in my mind though. The child has the right to know that he is adopted. Even if it breaks the parents’ hearts down the road when he seeks to meet his biological parents or shouts “you are not my real parents!” when having a teenage tantrum.

One signal that your child is ready to hear that he is adopted is if he asks questions. The worst thing you could do is lie or change the subject. Not taking the opportunity to answer your child’s honest question is the best way to have it backfire on you at the worst moment later.

Please share your experience if you have adopted a child.
