“It’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.”

Caitlin is a Family Resource Partner with the CEDARS Foster Care team. Not only does she support foster families, but she also helps interested families learn if fostering is right for them. 

Sometimes big emotions can be overwhelming for little bodies. When this happens, it is our job as a caring adult to show them compassion, comfort them and help them understand what they are feeling. Here are a few reasons that kids can get angry. 

CEDARS Foster Parents Dave and Melinda learned that their daughter Addison has an older sister that was also in need of care. The couple hadn’t considered caring for a teenager before, but they knew they didn’t want Addison to be separated from her sister.

It can be difficult for kids, teenagers, and even adults to identify and express their feelings in a way that is easy for others to understand. Be patient, and if you hear any of these phrases, dig deeper.

Thirteen year old Nikolai used to hate school. We met him this past spring when CEDARS was asked by his school to help provide support to him and his family.
