Fosterhood: Let’s Explore


With a mission to significantly reduce incidences of child abuse, Rene’s focus has been providing parenting education to all youth in high school. There are two real issues that child welfare faces: an overwhelming number of children being raised in total dysfunction and the lack of foster and adoptive parents.

The goal of the Fosterhood book series is to begin educating very young children by introducing them to the concepts of fostering and adoption in a safe and fun environment.

What does the program include?

We’ve taken 10 very common frustrating parenting situations and put them into a program, so that we can begin discussing with our youth the realities of parenting. This program includes:

  1. Teacher/Instructors manual meeting all national curriculum standards
  2. Manual also includes student worksheets and pre/post student surveys
  3. 10 parenting scenario videos. Each parenting video situation is approx. five-minutes in length. There is one video situation for each of the 10 chapters of this program

The teacher/instructor would begin the class by showing one video. Each scenario will escalate to the point of abuse, neglect, or dysfunction. The video is then stopped and the teacher/instructor can turn to class asking….what went wrong? What other choices did the parents have? What will you do?
