How Does Long Term Foster Care Affect Foster Children
“Instead of growing in my belly, you have grown in my heart” by an anonymous person. What this quote tells me is even though she might not have the same DNA, be related that she is still a mother that can still have a natural maternal heart for “her child” and that she loves it like it was her own. Children are placed in foster care for all different type of reason, physical abuse, neglect, runaways, etc. They have a different type of cases and experiences for each child. A foster home is a temporary safe place where kids stay until they find a “forever home”. Children placed in foster care can stay in a home for a week up to a year. Most foster families open their home to a foster child for a lovable stable home so they can nurture if they can’t have a natural child of their own. They are about 400 foster care kids in New Orleans on any given day. Forster children can have a difficult time fitting in school socially and academically, “44% of foster children spend all four years in the high school which is less than half” according to the “United Foster Care”.
Despite the enormous obstacles that the children may face and how it may change them emotionally, physically, mentally or/and etc. Some kids do have hope that they will find they a family that will love them. Foster care team up with local child advocates to thoroughly investigate the damaging system. Foster care has a negative effect on the children and communities. Children in foster care can have attachment ise with negative people in their life because might be all that they know of. Every time a child is removed from a home, they become aced and that may leave them devastated emonally all over again. About 33-66% that a child maybe attached and that can sters Care” . The kids may hey interact with e neglect, and/or s with they h kids mind and ability to be they best them. The outcome of the people that were in the are in foster re and also happen I can see why it would be hard h t part because the change can cause depression and anxiety which all together rigger can cause emotional damage while you are e can very hard, being took from your garden because they wasn’t doing right by you and now they try to get you back but you also have a little rebel by them. When kids going to a new home the new gardening can expect “aggression, withdrawals, regression to younger behavior, confusion on new rules, and inappropriate behavior according to “ How Kids Develope.Com” . Moving to a new home for new Foster kids can be a struggle especially if it’s a repeated event that happen . They have a 60 percent of Foster kids that end up finishing high school but only 20 percent of them are going to college, say “Foster Care resources”. In my opinion, it is hard for Foster kids to be successful because of the trauma that they go Thru and how they are always placed in and out of school.For example, in primary care, a sustaining innovation might be adding new and better equipment to a physician’s office. A disruptive innovation would be starting a telemedicine practice such as Doctor on Demand, which provides consultations via cell phone or iPad.18 A consultation with this practice currently costs $40—comparable to the cost of an office visit. From the patient’s perspective, however, there are substantial savings in terms of nonmonetary costs: travel time, waiting time, child care, missed work, the unpleasantness of getting out of bed while sick. The former innovation improves an existing market. The latter creates a new market.For example, in primary care, a sustaining innovation might be adding new and better equipment to a physician’s office.

The former innovation improves an existing market. The latter creates a new market, Harvard business professors Joseph Bower and Clayton Christensen call this process “disruptive innovation”—technological change driven by those outside the industry’s mainstream—that replaces complex products with simple ones, yields massive price decreases, and leads to previously unthinkable quality increases (perhaps in ways unimagined by the innovators).15 In The Innovator’s Prescription: A Disruptive Solution for Health Care, Christensen and his coauthors Jerome Grossman and Jason Hwang argue that health care remained anomalous during this period of rapid innovation.16 To be sure, there were astounding technological developments in health care, but the innovation was, in Christensen’s terms, “sustaining” rather than “disruptive.” Sustaining innovation brings evolutionary change to an existing market. Disruptive innovation brings revolutionary change that creates new markets altogether. Unlike disruptive innovation, sustaining innovation generally arises from established insiders and increases costs. For example, in primary care, a sustaining innovation might be adding new and better equipment to a physician’s office. A disruptive innovation would be starting a telemedicine practice such as Doctor on Demand, which provides consultations via cell phone or iPad.18 A consultation with this practice currently costs $40—comparable to the cost of an office visit. From the patient’s perspective, however, there are substantial savings in terms of nonmonetary costs: travel time, waiting time, child care, missed work, the unpleasantness of getting out of bed while sick. The former innovation improves an existing market. The latter creates a new market. Another example, explored later in depth, is the supply of prosthetic hands and arms. Sustaining innovations are those that improve the quality of professionally made prosthetics. Forster affect many children due the complication that are happening in they like that cause them to get put in the system. The hardship influence them to be depressed and have emotional problems. Due to the neglect many children are place in the foster care “.45 percent in nonrelative foster family homes 32 percent in relative foster family homes 7 percent in institutions 5 percent in group homes 5 percent on trial home visits (situations in which the State retains supervision of a child, the child returns home on a trial basis for an unspecified period of time, and after 6 months the child is considered discharged from foster care) 4 percent in pre adoptive homes 1 percent had run away 1 percent in supervised independent living” states in the 2016 foster care statistics. This show that nearly half of the children are placed in a non relative foster care home. “55 percent had a goal of reunification with parent or principal caretaker. 26 percent had a goal of adoption. 5 percent had not yet had a case plan goal established. 4 percent had a goal of emancipation.4 3 percent had a goal of long-term foster care. 3 percent had a goal of guardianship. 3 percent had a goal of living with other relative”, it also states in 2016 foster care statistics. This show that a little more than half that they reunification with the parents or principal caretakers. Children can also go to care if they are homeless kids in the rage of new born to the age of 12. Not all home offer long term care though, some home can offer emergency short term care for the moment. When you open your home to a kid that is no longer in they care can come with some difficulties because of they problem but will eventually grow as a whole. Talking to the kids and to help them better understand the situation can help them have less stress on them. Trying to understand the struggle and what they go though can also have have a little compassion for then so they can feel like they are not alone. Child traumatic stress occurs when children and adolescent are expose are exposed to event or situation that overwhelm their ability to copy and interfere with daily life and their ability to function and interact with other. This type of trauma can not only affect them mentally emotionally and physically but can also hurt them with the brain,bodies, and their behavior in the ways of thinking. Insecurity of not feeling safe for a child can cause bad habit. The increase of aggression is very common with kids that are abandoned because of the issue and the trust issue they have. The parents can heal the kids alway be patient with them and know that the kids can have personal issue. what this graph show is the changes in the foster care and changes in the congregate care from the year 2004 to 2013 from the percentage. They also have local cases with Foster children in one cases when a foster child in Oklahoma was ask what they want in a family. In a reader eye you can see that the child has been through a lot in his life because it was the most simple stuff he ask for but made a big deal to him. One of the things he ask for was “food and water, don’t want to be hit on, and nice clean clothes.” It can be things we take for granted the these children would have love to have. Being in Foster cares can change the perspective on what and how the child may think and how humble they may be to have half of what we have. This show how Foerster can change the mind of children and make them more humble. In a negative affect it never show them a lovable or even stable home which can have a Horrible toll on them.
Children in foster care are face with all type of doubts and they may mature more faster than other or they because of they experience. Exposing the foster care come with a lot of departments as far as putting kids in home that is unfit for them or can’t find home once you reach a certain age. Once they hit 18,really before the 18 birthday kids will find they self getting kick of of foster care into the streets and they will find themselves being homeless or institutionalize . Foster care have been known to put some children in care that they might know is unfit for them, such ass putting them back in care with they biological family that trying to get them back and may still be on drugs for example. Some Foster care might have been reported but the ones that are supposed to protect them sometimes might don’t even care to take them seriously and still might place them with the fosters people. Now in days they have child advocates that can help them when they turn 18 to ensure that they won’t be on the street.
.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWtYXLK6w7I A lady by the name of Valorie Frisk is a supporting child advocate because she has been through so much being in foster care when she was a child. She was abused and sexually assaulted in care. She decided that she wanted to be a child advocate and went to the in format the government and prepared a speech to tell legislative branch bout her life story to make sure this would not happen to another’s child. This also help he would be able to go to college because the child advocate senate in Philadelphia made it possible for her to attend. What so great about the child advocate is that they help save life and help the children get on track to they won’t be stuck when or before they turn 18. They also feel like they can trust people that want better for the future. “Turtle Nest Village” is one of the advocates company they have in Palm Beach County Florida that is a nun profitable company. They take kids on they 18 birthday coming out of foster care rent the young adult a apartment and send them a life coach that is a social worker and for 2 year they try to help them get on they feet.
What we need to do to change this system is to stop taking kids out of there home that they are getting abuse and put them in other home that they are abused in. All together they need to secure these home for the children they they won’t be mistreated and misplaced. People don’t may take up to months to a year if not longer to get a child back. Parents work so hard to get even remote custody over they child back, because once you make a error with that child and the giver feel like that child safety is in danger they will take that child in and assume custody which is really hard to get back. The parent try everything and anything to get the child back that includes taking parental class having social worker in and out of your home and having monitored busted with your own child. By the time you have completed that process your child would have endured many experiences in and out of care into different homes and abuse if not physically and/or mentally. They have lots of cases where children are being abuse in foster care so you would have thought the system off the foster care would have changed their system. When some people adopt their child they mostly do it for money so kids do loss hope that they will find a home that is devoted to them. They act out thinking that the home they are in is not they home it just a home that they are staying in momentarily. Theses children struggle with trusting people And letting them in they little bubble. Some kids are mistreated in they “Forever Home” that is post to love them and take care of them. The older kids get the less they are going to be adopted or if they are it would most likely be for the money. Children that have grown up in the foster care have grown to be very Resilience against adult or anyone. Foster care can mess with a child head and they mind set that can leave them Distraught and leave them to a destructive path. Becoming a foster parent, you have to be strong minded have stuck routine. Some parent have to have time with the child to get to know him/her and other may just fall madly in love with the child when first meeting them. They also have court date to check on the process on which your are have with the child . You don’t really have a say on what goes on but you have to attend and they will let you know if you are fit and continue to take care of that child and to support that child. It good to have your own support system like friends or family that can help because if your holding more than one foster child it can become challenging and that where people go wrong at and give up on the child. They also have people that would put they outside input on they opinions and this can sometimes change your mind on whether you want to keep a child or not. This whole ride on becoming a foster parent can be very emotional, or can be a roller coaster of ups and downs but I have seen right mentally physically things that going one in your head or that might be happening not just for your but the child also. Some children parents might fight for them in process but you might in try to adopt them as well which can cause more stress on the child because it have to choose between a person that have loved him/her when no one did again they biological parent which can cause a tone on the child leave me mentally or physically harmed. Ultimately everyone just fine everyone just wants what’s best for that kid, what is the best scenario that can’t play out in a long term life for this child. Being adopted, it can be the happiest moment of a child life. It’s life changing o here that you are going to be apart of someone family and not just a “piece of property” for that government to have hold on.
Settling into this new life with a new family can be hard, it’s kinda like starting a new life just with people that love and want you and would not do anything to jeopardize you being taken away from them. Through the process of all of the events that happen to the child the struggles they have and the challenges that they face or have yet to come and face has deeply affect that child. Foster care is not place for a child to grow up because it affect them in many ways. Talking about the corruption of the foster care and exposing its “dark wen” making it seem not all as good as they portray it to be. It can leave a child brainwashed to believe that they are no thing and unwanted because that all they hear. Being abuse to moved from place to place cause mess with a child head and convince them that they are not worth anything. Foster care can affect children negatively are they are doing is ensuring that the children are not on the street and have food to eat. Some places may find a home for them but once they hit the age 8 that is very unlikely of them to find a home. It sad that children are not being taken seriously in this industry and are being taken advantage of for other people needs or money from the government. Raising a child although can be very hard it’s also a big responsibility and come with lots of obstacles. Children come from all different type of home that are abusive and altogether not a good play for kid to be, but foster care take out of that and place just to put then in another. Children that come from broken home and put into care face a lot of trouble in life and the outcome is much different than children that growed up in a stable home. Negatively the care of the children can affect them and leave to do things they would not orgianaly do. As the number in children increase over the year and the care slowly increase if not remain steady these care are becoming full and there not enough of foster parent to help with the living of each child, so that mean the the homes of the care will become in worst condition that they are already in. The government just don’t care enough about the foster care to help with the needs they are in now and the help they acquire.
To be able to completely recognize and understand the full policy and programs, knowing how and why they were developed is important. Background information will also be vital to thoroughly grasping their purposes and goals. The Fostering Connections to Success and Increasing Adoptions Act of 2008, John H. Chafee Foster Care Independence Program, and John Burton Advocates for Youth will be broken down in order to explain the issues they are attempting to resolve. The importance of these issues will...
Foster care system is one of the biggest crisis that America is facing today. Foster care refers to a minor who faced neglect or any abuse and is a place in a ward, group home, or a private home care giver. This event means the government has a sole custody of the child. The government governs the child’s well-being. Foster care was founded to provide the proper care of these children that were abused or neglected. According to the Psychology...

Well, to begin with, the foster care system, is a government program where children are placed in if they ever become an orphan or are taken custody of by the child protective services.

Abstract Efforts at child protection are structured by the policy regimes in which they are enmeshed (Edwards, 2016). According to Nesmith, Patton, Christophersen, & Smart (2017), the goal of the US foster care system is to provide safe, stable, nurturing home environments for children who cannot safely live with their family of origin. Child welfare wanted to come up with an achievement that would help the foster system. This provoked the idea of having a child go from foster care...
Foster Care Foster homes, currently in the state of Alabama, house approximately 6,000 youth (under 21) in the foster care system. Internationally in the US there were over 670,000 in the foster care system. The idea of foster homes in America was birthed from the English Poor Laws. These laws, before Charles Bruce’s influence, made it possible for citizens to take in beggars and displaced youth in exchange for indentured servitude until adulthood. The origins of Elizabethan Poor Laws began...

Benjamin Eaton was America’s first foster child at 7 years old. Since then, Charles Loring Brace started the free foster home movement in 1853. Now, there is approximately 440,000 foster youth nationwide. When it comes to the topic of foster care, most experts will readily agree that emancipating youth do become homeless. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of why they become homeless. Whereas some are convinced that it is due to their behavior, others maintain...
Foster care is a temporary home for children who cannot live with their family’s. It sometimes does good and helps kids find a good and healthy home to live in with a supportive family. It also has many flaws. Foster care needs to change because kids age out of foster care with no support, children’s needs go unheard, and there are many abusive and neglected foster homes. One of the worst things about foster care is that the children’s needs...
