Foster Parent Handbook

Our Home - Your Home is a handbook for foster parents. Although all parents will find the handbook useful for understanding and working with their children, it focuses specifically on abused and neglected children and on the special challenges of parenting for these children. If you prefer reading the handbook, you may download The PDF Edition Here. The audio edition is 3.5 hours so you may also find it convenient to download it from GaryCrow.net under the audio player for the podcast episode. Also note that the address in the PDF edition is incorrect.

I hope you find the handbook useful and wish you and your foster child all the best.

Mind Over Madness

Most of the time we have no need to make that extra effort to relate and to get along. Our worlds are fairly calm and predictable. There are those times though, those times when, as the country song says, “People are crazy.” Sure, it’s not clear whether it’s “people” or just maybe us who are crazy. It is at those times when today’s tips come in most handy. It is a matter of mind over madness. It’s us or them.
