April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and foster and adoptive families are integral to child abuse prevention. So this month on Parents Tool Talk, we will discuss the topic of "Celebrating Foster and Adoptive Families." Our special guest expert is Atasha Kelley-Harris, independent Child and Family Services Consultant and president of KMH Consulting Group. Some of the topics we will cover include: reasons children enter foster care; how the Child Protective Services system works (and how it doesn't); foster parents' roles and responsibilities; praise for foster and adoptive parents; challenges of foster parenting; practical tips for foster parents; and LIVE Q&A with listeners. Please submit your questions to questions@ParentsToolTalk.com!
