Being a foster parent closely resembles that of any parent providing day-to- day
supervision and support for their children in a stable and loving home environment.
And yet, foster parenting is different than parenting your own child in so many
ways because your foster children will not have the same foundation as the other
children you have parented. Some foster parents refer to their role as foster
parenting as “parenting plus” or “conscious parenting.” It will not always be the
natural parenting styles that you are accustomed to.
