There are many factors to consider when becoming a foster or adoptive parent. Imagine you are a human services professional working with clients who are in the process of becoming a foster or adoptive parent.
Describe how you would prepare them for having children placed in their home? (Things to consider: how to prepare their home, their families, cultural and religious differences, possible work issues)
What do they need to know about the children in the foster care system? (Things to consider: separated siblings, birth parents, educational and behavioral issues)
Identify the information you want to avoid sharing with the foster parents to safeguard confidentiality of the case.
What tips would you give them about how to help the child/ren feel comfortable in their home?
Both roles can be quite stressful. Give examples of where they can turn for support in your community.
Be sure to use specific information from the text to support your answers.
