Tips for Co-Parenting Well
Foster care is supporting children and their parents during a period of separation. This involves co-parenting with the child’s biological parents. Co-parenting can be one of the hardest parts of a foster parent’s job. Done well, co-parenting can be an important factor in the child’s smooth return home and reduce the likelihood the child will reenter foster care in the future. Co-parenting is a gift to kids in foster care because they see the adults in their life working as a team and struggle less with divided loyalties. The foster parent can also serve as a healthy parenting role model for the biological parents.

I love that you talked that during the period of separation of child and parent, foster care is the act of supporting the children. My best friend informed me last night that he and his wife were planning to adopt a child because they have fertility problems, and he asked if I had any idea what would be the best choice to consider. I appreciate this enlightening article, I'll tell him that it will be much better if they consult foster care as they can provide more information about the procedure of parenting.
