Caring for children damaged by abuse and delay is a tough and often thankless job. What Foster Parents Need to Know is a no-nonsense book by professionals and foster parents about how to navigate the system, deal with problem behavior, and be effective.
A brief opening section describes how to keep a journal online or in a handy notebook. Keeping such a diary is easy and will provide valuable documentation for dealing with allegations, going to court in disputed adoptions, and preparing a Life Book. Also included is information on the five important adoption subsidies, tips on discipline, how to make your voice heard as a foster parent, and more. A practical resource for all foster parents, especially those who hope to adopt.
