Foster care

Foster care is a system in which a minor has been placed into a ward, group home (residential child care community, treatment center,...), or private home of a state-certified caregiver, referred to as a "foster parent" or with a family member approved by the state. The placement of the child is normally arranged through the government or a social service agency. The institution, group home or foster parent is compensated for expenses unless with a family member.

Shouldn't we be watching the homes we put children in? Things like this should not be happening. We take kids from there biological parents to give them better lives and better parents but then things like this happen. Foster Parents are killing the kids that are given to them. This needs to stop.

This video is not funny but has a serious message. Foster care can hinder the development of a child mentally, physically, and psychologically. Many of these foster kids need to seek therapy or additional help because of the abuse or the past experiences that these children were in. Many of these kids will have long lasting problems after leaving foster care.
