Foster parents not only need to know the basics of raising a child,
but also how certain parenting issues may affect a child who has been
removed from his or her home and placed in foster care.
You & Your Foster Child is a series of easy-to-use guides written
especially for foster parents to provide information and advice on 20
topics that may be encountered while caring for a foster child. Each guide is written by the University of Pittsburgh Office of Child
Development based on current parenting literature, and is reviewed by a
panel of child development experts and practitioners.
guides are offered free of charge to foster parents, family
organizations, agencies, professionals, and others who work with foster
children and their families.
