Kids Need To Be Safe: A Book for Children in Foster Care


Product Description

Published USA, 2006
This book can help children prepare for, understand and accept foster care. Simple words and realistic colour illustrations tell and show why some children move to foster homes, what foster parents do, and how children might feel during foster care. Children often believe that they are in foster care because they are `bad`. This book makes it clear that the troubles in their lives are not their fault. Even when parents have problems, children deserve to be safe. Foster parents can keep them safe. This book offers hope and support for children and adults. The first part is meant to be read and shared with children. The second part includes information and resources for adults who work to keep children safe: parents, foster parents, social workers, teachers and caregivers.
