This book uses the Girls and Boys Town approach to foster care. It focuses on building relationships with youth, teaching life skills, and empowering them by teaching self-discipline and self-control. Foster parents and other primary caregivers will find effective, research-based solutions for these common concerns: Building a warm, trusting relationship with a foster child who still may have a strong attachment to his or her original family. Working with the foster child's parents, who may be uncooperative or even hostile. Creating a safe environment for your foster child, you, and your family. Respecting your foster child's ethnic and cultural background, while teaching the child skills to help him or her succeed in the larger world. Learning how to handle blow ups and prevent and correct misbehavior while you stay calm. Teaching your foster child how to stay under control, solve problems, and make good decisions, even when he or she is angry or frustrated. Handling transitions when a foster child moves to another placement or returns home.
Best Use: New or experienced foster parents and other primary caregivers, licensed youth serving agencies, mentors, and others seeking to build a trusting relationship with foster youths.
