Main Questions You Need to Consider
Fostering is life-changing, it’s one of the most fulfilling things anyone can do. It gives young people a new chance in life, enabling them to grow up and develop in a safe, secure and supportive environment. Before you become a foster carer, there are some things you need to ponder deeply – as whilst it is an incredibly rewarding experience, it can also be demanding and challenging.
Firstly, you need to think about whether you have both the time and resources to parent a child, who has unfairly had a difficult start in life and may bring certain challenges with them. For instance, if you have other children in your home, you need to also consider how they would feel about the foster child. Above all, if you foster, you must be able to give every child in your home adequate time, attention and care.
Fostering a child will likely change a significant part of your lifestyle – and you have to be prepared for this. Therefore, it’s worth thinking about your relationships – whether it’s with your partner or family. You need to be 100% sure that everyone who will be closely around the foster child is fully ready and prepared for the change. Foster children require a stable environment, so that they can grow healthy both emotionally and physically. If there are existing issues within certain relationships, then these need to ideally be resolved before a foster child is placed into a family.
