May is National Foster Care Month and we thought we’d share 10 ways in 10 days you can support kids in care without becoming a foster parent.
Tip #7. Mentor a foster kid
This will likely require the same training as a babysitter or respite provider, but this is so much more than that. There are many single parent foster homes or homes with many kids that could really use another role model. This is particularly true for older kids who may be a bit more challenging. These kids need all the supportive adults in their life they can get. Offer to take a foster kid out for dinner, ice cream, to a ball game on a regular basis and really pour into their life for however long they are in their foster home.
