My Family Fosters: a handbook for sons and daughters of foster carers

1152 - My Family Fosters: a handbook for sons and daughters of foster carers

This handbook provides children whose family has chosen to foster with answers to the many questions they have. In straightforward language, it explains what fostering means, and why children and young people may be in foster care. It explores some of the concerns sons and daughters may have, and suggests practical ways they can deal with the difficulties they may face.

Topics include:

- What is fostering and what will it mean for me?
- Making changes at home
- Coping with difficult behaviour
- School and friends
- Safer caring
- Secrets and disclosure
- Sources of support

We recommend that children attending session 7 of 'The Skills to Foster' recieve a copy of My Family Fosters

The handbook has been developed with input from sons and daughters of foster carers across the UK
