I've two children, one of whom is explosive, high needs. He's now 8.5 years old. Despite the issues that arise within our household. we're interested in foster parenting a young (5 years and under). I actually did this sort of work before I had children so I'm a bit familiar with the process. I actually had ruled out ever foster parenting until my older son was grown ... I have felt having a biological child with issues would be a deterrent for any right minded placement worker.
Anyway, I've been revisiting this idea - anyone here who foster parents and had had to deal with behavioural issues from their own biological children? Does Foster Parenting work when one of your own children has behavioural/mental health issues too?
