I appreciate learning more about myself as I learn about taking care of foster adoptive children I am personally an adoptive child and any information that will help me out for myself along with my two biological children it’s just extremely helpful and I greatly enjoyed this training

Good information.


Thank you for providing information about Tweens, as well as Teens

Good reminders. Also, helpful to know that I am not being over the tope and overbearing!

Overall a good course with a lot of information to consider. I know a lot of people were upset with the speaker saying "all accidents are preventable." I disagree that all accidents are preventable, however understand where she is coming from. Since she is a DFACS worker who has most likely witnessed accidents that were preventable, I believe her real aim is to drive the point home that supervision is necessary for accident prevention.

I foster a Teen, so this course was very interesting to me.

She said "every accident is preventable", she reiterated this about 30 times during the presentation. I simply disagree. We can't prevent everything, even with supervision.

"All accidents are preventable." False. *Dwight Schrute gif*
