Children often believe that they are in foster care because they are “bad.” This book makes it clear that the troubles in their lives are not their fault; the message throughout is one of hope and support. Includes resources and information for parents, foster parents, social workers, counselors, and teachers.
Educates readers about safety, including the value of fear as a warning of danger, the need to beware of people whose behavior creates discomfort, and the importance of learning how to stay safe.
