Fostering Change Podcast | Episode 185 | Laura of @foster.parenting

Fostering Change Podcast with Laura of @foster.parenting | Hosted by Rob Scheer

On today’s episode of Fostering Change, Rob speaks with Laura, @foster.parenting, whose mission is to educate and support people about the foster care system. Often, new foster parents are not prepared for everything they need to know before their first children come to them.

Laura discusses how the “cracks of child welfare are deep”, from misplaced birth certificates to wrong names of the child, and without knowing the right types of questions to ask, you run the risk of not knowing these things and have to play catch up – which is not the situation a new foster parent – or their child – wants to be in!

In this insightful conversation, you will here:

🖐️ What sweeping changes need to be made in the foster care system

🖐️ What should be considered when setting up your home for a foster child

🖐️ How every state has different rules and regulations and how that affects parents and youth

🖐️ How we should be moving from “mandated reporting” to “mandated supporting”
