How do you meet the needs of the children who come to you from less than optimal situations? For those caring for children who have come to them from broken and battered families through the child welfare system, the rewards can seem small and the challenges more intense than anything you have ever experienced. Raising children from tough beginnings, working with the child welfare system, and advocating for the children in your care can be difficult with a steep learning curve. But now, foster and resource parents have a place to turn to for answers, comfort, and a deep community connection. Covering topics both timely and practical, The Foster Parenting Toolbox offers you the help you need whether you’re just starting out on your foster parenting journey or you’ve already welcomed hundreds of children to your home. This book provides words of wisdom, connections to others who’ve walked in the same shoes, and advice for the most difficult situations you might encounter. More than 100 contributors have created this useful resource specifically for foster parents and the professionals who work with them: caseworkers, social workers, judges, CASA’s, GAL’s and others who are a part of the foster child’s team. This is a top of the nightstand resource that offers you access 24/7 to a wealth of useful information from professionals in the field and successful resource and foster parents in the trenches. This is a book you may not read all at once, but you will come back to it again and again.
