Knowing when to expect your kids to "chip in" around the house can be difficult, especially with kids in foster care. They have often not been taught how to do simple chores properly or may have been given far too much responsibility at a young age. Take things slowly, adding more with time. Keep in mind that children mature at their own pace and not all kids will be capable of advanced chores at the same age. Likewise, some children may be ready for more difficult chores at a younger age. Here is a chart that may be a helpful starting point! #makeadifference #satorifoster #fosterparenting ...

Celebrating success is an incredible way to nourish and encourage a child's progress and growth. By praising everyday successes, no matter how big or small, parents unlock one of the most powerful tools to support and connect with their child in their continued development. For children, praise is a sign of progression. By taking the time to cherish achievements, you’re teaching your child about the things you’re proud of and what you’d like them to continue to do. Look for something to celebrate each day and watch the kids in your care increase both own confidence and their trust in you. #satorifoster #fosterparenting #celebratesuccess ... See MoreSee Less
