  • If you're like me, the older I get the slower I get. Age affects other things, too. Like when it comes to bonding with adopted, foster, or stepchildren-their age matters. In general, the younger a child is, the faster you bond with them. Teens are seeking autonomy and independence so they're not as invested in new relationships as their parents are. Bonding can be slow going, so loosen your expectations. Recognize that age influences a child's openness so meet the child where they are.
