Some Do’s and Don’ts of Foster Care

Written by: Serenity Henderson March 25, 2021

  • Do teach your child about the importance of their emotions and feelings and how they can express them in better ways
  • Don’t endure any cruel punishment like withholding them from a meal or beating them severely when being disciplined
  • Do allow them to have choices, they’ve most likely lived ion situations where there opinion didn’t matter or where there basic needs weren’t a priority
  • Don’t compare or withhold them from being around your biological kids if you have them
  • Do give your child space and privacy, allow these kids to grow and become independent beings. If you always keep them sheltered, they’ll never feel comfortable enough to branch out and try new things or do things on there own
  • Don’t have unrealistic expectations of these children, they come from different backgrounds and lifestyles so something that maybe normal for a average ten year old boy might not be normal for your ten year old foster
