I would really enjoy reading more of your thoughts on a couple of issues, because I believe that when it comes to foster parenting and adoptive parenting, the expertise is with those who are living it. Since we are in the middle of summer break, I wonder How did you successfully include a foster child on your family vacations?.
Summer also means that the kids are home with parents all day! So, with that often comes kids fighting. How do you handle your foster or adopted children when the fighting begins? How do you handle sibling rivalry?
Summertime sometimes means opportunities for sleepovers for children, but sometimes foster and adopted children have issues due to abuse and neglect. These issues may prevent them from enjoying sleepovers like other children.
What summertime issues do you deal with in your foster or adoptive home? Please share any and all ideas - or issues that you are struggling with.
