We are a foster family that is frustrated with DHS regarding visitation and we are considering offering to supervise visits to make it easier.
The mom made some mistakes regarding visitation at the beginning of the case, but seems to be doing better. It is so difficult to get visitation scheduled with DHS supervising that we think it would be easier to work directly with the mom. We would like feedback from bio parents.
- Would you prefer to have one of the foster parents supervise visit or would you prefer DHS?
- Would you want the foster parent to be silent unless redirection of conversation is necessary?
- Would you be willing to do things together with the foster family in order to make it more comfortable for the kids?
- What recommendations/concerns would you have as the bio family?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
