"The thing that impresses me most about North America is the way parents obey their children"    (King Edward VII , 1841-1910)

Simple rules adhered to when children are young can prevent more serious problems later.

The best inheritance  parents can give their children is a few minutes of their time each day.

If there is no relationship - nothing else matters !

Many clinicians find it easier to tell parents their child has a brain-based disorder than suggest parenting changes. Jennifer Harris (psychiatrist)

The way we talk to our children becomes their inner voice. (Peggy O'Mara)

Hurt people hurt people.

"To be a man, a boy must see a man."  (J.R. Moehringer)

Foster Parents Working With Birth Parents

 

 

The Children’s Aid Society has a legal responsibility to provide care for children who, for a variety of reason are unable to live with their birth family. The preferred arrangement for most of these children is to live temporarily within a foster home and work towards the reunification of the family. A respectful working relationship between the foster parents and birth parents can provide an essential ingredient in the reunification process. This workshop explores practical ideas on how foster parents can facilitate healthy outcomes for children and their families. (3 hours)
