If you (parents) tend to overreact to your child's misbehaviour - your child learns that he can't trust you. Mom, Dad, stay regulated!

Children do not develop on their own - they only develop within relationships.

"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)
