Tips to Raise Kids Who Won't Swear
Never make contact without checking it out with the social workers
Remain positive in front of foster children
Honest about the situation
Be prepared for: meetings and showing up with an open mind.
How can we help foster childen?

Provide respite
Become big Brother/Sister
Donate (school supplies, clothes...)
Foster parents need more support to achieve success.
Every decision should be taken always thinking of the kids welfare.
Foster care is not merely a solution for childless couples it should be a solution for
careless children.
The system is filled with too many rules and regulations.
Kids removed from their families should be placed with other families not in group homes.
More difficulty in enforcing designated rules
May not be prepared to deal with the child’s special needs

Everything based on emotion
More likely to have unwelcome / unauthorized contact with their Birth Parents
