Video: The Foster Care Experience

Have you seen this?

Denalee Chapman June 04, 2015

Although created in the state of California, this video about foster care is broad and goes into describing the foster care experience for children all over. A variety of foster children, social workers, care givers and more share their perspectives and their experiences.

Proper training for foster care parents makes a huge difference in the lives of the children placed in their homes. Stopping the cycle that creates the need for foster homes is the ultimate goal. Many of the children now in foster care come from parents who were in foster care themselves.

Some foster children may have lived their lives in abusive situations before entering foster care. A huge problem is that some foster homes are also abusive, despite the screening process and the training. To end the cycle, foster homes need to be safe and loving. There are organizations trying to make a difference and working to flip the negative situations into positive, lasting ones.
