Foster Parent Forum

As you may well be aware, fostering is fun and rewarding and yet oh so challenging at times. While fostering you will likely have many children living in your home and everyone of them will have a different personality, some tolerable behaviors, others somewhat intolerable, however, in most cases they can be dealt with.

Some will bond with you, others, not so much. Some will show respect, where others seem almost happy to punch a hole in your wall, (just kidding). They are just angry about what is happening in their lives and they may act out in ways unthinkable to you. Some are kind, caring and would do anything to be of help to you, while others will run, steal and cause you more heartache than you could ever think possible.

You will get through it, with support from your social worker, friends and family. Is it all worth it? Most definitely, these kids need you more now than they will ever need anyone.

Remember, it takes a special kind of person to do this kind of work, it's not for everyone.

Listen to what others have to say.

Becoming a foster parent. What will you choose?
