Format: Paperback
As a special needs foster parent of six years I've had to solve my childrens' issues pretty much on my own. I came across "Families at Risk" by accident. I'm happy to say it hasn't been out of my arms reach for two weeks.It is full of much needed information like: *Tips on how to help children express anger in a safe way. *Emotional stages that children go thru and how to handle them. *Parents personal stories. *Uplifting quotes. *Positive discipline techniques. *How to document on your children. *Establishing family rules. I could go on and on. This is a book that I feel should be supplied to all foster and adoptive parents. Give it a try!
