A Few Reasons Why Children Maybe in Foster Care

Updated: Feb 3, 2022

Abandonment, neglect, and abuse are among reasons why children are put in foster care. Children under the age of 18 are commonly placed in a residential group, foster home, or therapeutic kinship care with relatives when they are removed from their parents' homes. Moving to a new area is a regular component of foster care placement changes, and each move affects a foster child's social, educational, and family experiences. Foster children who have been transferred several times may experience greater rejection and impermanence, as well as having a harder difficulty forming ties and trusting people and other children. As a result, children's connections with their peers, families, and society might be harmed as a result of recurrent foster care migration.
