Shared Parenting: Putting the Needs of Children First
As a foster parent, you play a key role in keeping children in care connected with their families. Recognizing the strengths of their parents will go a long way in helping you to build and maintain positive relationships. Shared parenting is not always easy because it requires you and the child’s family to work together. By working together, you are helping children to meet their identified needs.
