Overcoming Parenting Challenges
Foster parents, adoptive parents, and kinship caregivers often encounter challenges when raising children who have gone through the child welfare system and may have experienced trauma or other difficulties. The November 2011 issue of Fostering Perspectives provides tips, strategies, and resources for parents to help them better understand the struggles their children may face and give them the tools to help move beyond those challenges.
Some of the links include information on difficult behavior, dealing with children who have been sexually abused, building trust, advice from youth on what parents can do to respond to difficult behavior, children who have witnessed domestic violence, and more.
Fostering Perspectives is sponsored by the North Carolina Division of Social Services and the Family and Children's Resource Program. Issues are available on the website:
