Answer Some adults abuse children, neglect,sexual,violent etc.. or engage in criminal or immoral behavior. Their children need to be accommodated away from the parents and the harm being inflicted upon them. This is usually with foster carers. When the parents change their behavior the child will …be able to return to the parents. Parental responsibility stays with the parents. If the parents fail to demonstrate change then the authorities may permanently remove the child from the parents at which time they may be freed for adoption and parental responsibility moves to the new parents. Usually when a child is with foster carers the child will maintain some contact with the birth family as the aim should be to return a child to its parents so long as the child will be safe from harm. Answer Whilst you should not foster for the money, there should be generous payments to allow people to do it professionally and to not have to work on top of looking after a foster child. Many children who have been abused need to work through the issues and have a supportive rewarding person to help them through it. The work is demanding and emotionally draining and is not at all like having your own children. ANSWER Foster care is the government taking a child from their family, some times for legitimate reasons, more times not, and placing the child in "foster homes" where people who generally are retired or do not work are paid on a per child basis to provide a "home like" environment.

Answer . It's not a hard thing to be a successful Foster Parent. You just need to have Love, lots of patience, remember they aren't mad at you (you just happen to be the one they are with and their parents aren't the way you are and they want them to be).. Being a Foster parent for 6 years and an …adoptive parent for 4 years, it is worth it. Remember when you are a Foster Parent, you are not just fostering a child, you are fostering a family. I've have learned that if you can build a relationship with the parents, they will be willing to hear and impliment you suggestions on their relationship with the children. They will also ask for help directally instead of throught the case worker. I still have parents I had their kids 5 years ago call me for suggestions. Just keep at it and remember you don't have to be perfect. Just remember, your house is the only normal place they have ever been and will know when they are grown, what a family is suppose to be like. this is how you be a parent..no parent is successful, but whatever...you guide your childern, you dont boss them around, do not care how old they are, their still human beings., they too dont like to be pushed and shoved(plus its harder to get through to them that way...) You guide them with what they need to know to grow and become a responsible, accountable indivisuals. give them..how do you put it??..."tests"? for them to prove what they've gathered from your advice. Love them, talk with them, have two-way coversations...not one-way.( god i hate those...) have any other specific questions, ask me. ( Full Answer )
Foster parents do not get paid. Foster parents are reimbursed for child expenses. They get a check every month. The amount of money a foster parent receives depends on what agency they are with. Usually it is enough to provide food and clothes and pay utilities. You will often hear foster parents co…mplaining about "How little" they receive. ( Full Answer )

There are some programs available to help pay for extra curricular activities such as soccer or gymnastics. ( Full Answer )

This depends on the child. I work in a behavioral home for children age 4-12. The kids I work with have often hurt their caretakers during rages. Right now, I have bruises from a 10 year old girl whom I had to restrain so she wouldn't run away in downtown fort worth. My coworker is off because of a …back injury from these kids. If they are higher functioning kids, no way. But severely traumatized kids can be extremely dangerous to themselves and others. Another child has permanently damaged a baby from bashing the baby's head into a crib. She should not have been left alone with the baby, but still, most kids would not do something like that. You need to get good information on the type of kid you might get. Expect fits in the beginning, they will test your limits to see if you will keep them safe. But, don't agree to take specialized kids unless you are willing to get the bruises, lock up all knives, medications, and other potentially dangerous items. Also, in severely abused kids, they can make false allegations, so your reputation is something to consider. I would never ever ever as a single parent take in any child because of this. I've seen too many times kids get mad and make up a story that could not be true. People love to assume caretakers are at fault when things go wrong, because there are many who do not do a good job. But the good ones I think are at risk. I am saying a lot, but keep in mind I only work with behavioral kids. So I'm seeing the worst cases. There are many sweet kids who need good homes. Just insist on taking basic children. Anything beyond that could be dangerous. ( Full Answer )

In seventeen states (U.S), you must attend a PS MAPP class, which consists of a three hour class, once per week, for ten weeks. I know that Arizona, Iowa and Kansas are three of the states that use the PS MAPP training program. You should check with your state child welfare agency, the one that lice…nses foster parents, and they will be able to tell you if they utilize this particular training system. Other states may use a similar program in length and time. Regardless, you would be looking at around thirty hours of training before you could become eligible to be a foster parent. ( Full Answer )
In the USA: yes, you get a stipend or board rate for each child based on their age. Children with special needs are higher. For anyone thinking they are going to make money off of fostering, please do not do it, this is about helping children and reunification or adoption. So many misconceptions a…bout foster parents, when we fostered we paid out way more than we brought in, we devoted all our time into helping these children, they destroyed our personal property at times and we still had to treat them as if they are a guest in our home. It is hard and subsidies are not a form of payment for it. Foster parenting is for people that have the ability and funds to help out children for a short amount of time, and a few for a long amount of time. We went from fostering a child that was considered unadoptable to adopting her, she has had DCF called on us a few times over her behaviors, but we still love her and did not give up. We had taken her on at 8 years old in diapers not fully sure of her disorders, within 30 days she was out of diapers, in a public school and doing fairly well as long as it was a structured environment. Schools don't listen, other people don't listen when you say please do not take your eyes off of her. She beat one child with a baseball bat because someone wouldn't listen to us, another with a rock, and tried to strangle a boy that she was stalking at school. The schools don't like it when they call DCF and have it switched around on them because they did not listen. We found out she had Fetal Alcohol Syndrome just before adoption, DCF lies about the children they place in homes so they can get adopted. Since we cared about her so much we didn't want to stop the process over it. FAS is a horrible issue to deal with and many in care have it. I will not foster again, just so that you know, it isn't for me anymore, but that is because I could not handle another child that possibly has FAS or another disorder. Not all have issues, but most do. ( Full Answer )
you can call child services but you need a reasonable excuss like your being beaten or raped or something horrible like that or if you have permission from BOTH parents
WikiAnswers contributors share their opinions: . There are so many things that can help you become a more successful parent - and not necessarily in the order listed below.... Needless to say, feed them, clothe them and provide the necessary tools for everyday life. Additionally, mothers do …NOT have a sexuality handicap with male sons, as indicated in the answer below. Regardless of the parent's sexuality, a parent is a parent to a son or a daughter. The love and respect they have for their child does not have sexuality barriers or "handicaps." Once a parent, always a parent, for the rest of your life! Here is a list of things you can do: . Read parenting & family books - Dr. Phil's "Families First" is highly recommended by a lot of physiologists in the arena of helping families. . Lead by example - Children mimic what they learn from their parents. If there is something you learned/acquired from your childhood that you do NOT want to pass on to your children, acknowledge to yourself what that is and make a conscious/cognizant effort to ensure they don't see it within you. This will break the cycle of your kids passing it on to their children. . Tell your children that you love them EVERY DAY - We cannot rewind our lives to edit and change, so make the best of the present - which impacts their future - because we have no control over when we leave this earth. . Be honest, trustworthy and treat them with RESPECT - Children learn trust factors at a very early age. If you tell them you're going to take them to the park, Disneyland, etc., then do it. If you don't feel you can commit and follow through with the promise, then don't make it to begin with. Therein lies the respect factor: If you demonstrate respect, you will be responded to with respect. . Basically with 3 nonnegotiable firm attitudes: Love, rigorous critical standards and sacrifice. From the day a child is born until age 14, then eventually and slowly shift the rigor with the advices you would expect for yourself and exchange tolerance for child's assumption of responsibility . Do not forget that mothers have a sexuality handicap with male sons. In the first 14 years, they should be aware of this and treat them evenly with your daughters. Values should be taught in very early youth and go basically with the Ten Commandments in a philosophic attitude of mankind. Be tolerant in the way the child sees his world, but talk to him about the why those 10 attitudes are not negotiable. You can exchange anything else except if what he asks, can put in risk his LIFE. These items should be a must in all families. In addition, feed your kids with food, not trash: milk and water instead of soft drinks; vegetables and fruits; little salt and sugar; and once a week legumes (lentils, beans, or chickpeas). .

He lived with his father (and mother?) until he went to be apprenticed to a professional painter. He needed no foster parents.
The answer is complicated. I would say on average its 15%yes and85% No. That is if the prior ACS case the person had was"Indicated" AKA Guilty AKA credible evidence was found by ChildProtective Specialist that the allegation made in the report morelikely than not occured. If the prior case was "Unfo…unded" AKA NotGuilty AKA no credible evidence was found by CPS then the priorcase would not even matter when applying to become a foster parent.Although relatively few, there are some people whom have"Indicated" cases who become foster parent. However, this isusually in cases of kinship foster paent where the foster parent isgenetically related or is considered family by the biologicalfamily of the foster child. And even in those few cases where thisoccurs, the certiifying foster care ageny must put in safetyinterventions in order to reduce risk of any potential harm to thechild. ACS will also monitor your home closely and close yourfoster home if you have any "slip ups", which ultimately removesall foster children whom you were caring for at the time.

A similar all-pass filter can be implemented by interchanging the position of the resistor and capacitor, which turns the high-pass filter into a low-pass filter. The result is a phase shifter with the same quadrature frequency but a 180 degree shift at high frequencies and no shift at low frequenci…es. In other words, the transfer function is negated, and so it has the same pole at -1/RC and reflected zero at 1/RC. Again, the phase shift of the all-pass filter is double the phase shift of the first-order filter at its non-inverting input. ( Full Answer )
