Back to School Tips for Foster Parents

From Our Clinical Director

I hope everyone has had a great summer as it is quickly coming to an end.  We are looking forward to hearing about the great adventures and trips that many of you took. Well school is starting back and as much as parents say they are glad and the children say they are ready to go back, changing from one routine to another can be stressful. We have children with great potential; remember every situation is an opportunity for teaching.   A lot of times our kids are angry and they have great reason to be.  In many cases, life has not been fair to them, they have things going on within their body and brain that they don’t understand and they do not know how to control themselves.

In Memory of Robin Williams

We thank you Robin Williams, not only for the times we smiled, cried, or laughed till we cried, but for bringing the issue of depression and mental illness to the fore front. There are a lot of people of all races, genders, and social status that deal with mental health illnesses such as depression. They should never feel like they are alone. People really do care and matter about what you are going through.
