A Mission to Reach Kids
My adopted daughter spent the first ten years of her life in and out of CPS supervision. Much of her life was consumed by CPS visits, family reunification visits, foster family visits and counseling. During this period, art became an important outlet for her not only as an escape, but as a method to express herself.
Discipline Your Kids with an I Love You
I became a parent later in life and adopted a pre-teen. One thing I’ve learned, especially in the case of children from the foster system, is that they have experienced a wide range of rules, restrictions and discipline styles. It is important that you assume nothing and set clear expectations from the start.
