Do you think being a foster parent should be a good deed or a career?


Maybe I'm biased, but after a comment on one of my hubs I wanted to see what others thought. Do you think being a foster parent should be a career or a good deed?

    You are so right. Those who feel they can make money on the system soon realize that's not the case. There is stringent qualifications these days and a training course that one must complete. Unqualified people usually show during this process.

    Hi brownella, You are so right. Foster Parenting can be very fulfilling. It can be both a career and a good dead, although I didn't think of it as a career. It was just doing my best to be a good Mom to each and every one.

    Thank you windygreen. Dedication and love of children - giving them what they need - love and commitment - moral and emotional support - it all comes in there. Foster care is not about money - its above helping kids in need.
