Environment is important

29 06 2009

No – this isn’t a Green article – but that is important too.

An interesting article in the weekend Guardian: Family under the microscope. In a study, it was shown that even seriously maltreated children can recover and even overcome early problems given an improved environment. So it’s very important not to give up on them!

Now I know the article isn’t about fostering as such, but that’s one of the main things I think fostering is all about really. Helping a child to recover from a bad start. As I said in an earlier post, it’s amazing the difference you see in just a short space of time simply down to them being in a more stable and caring environment.

A wee plug for Edinburgh who have a campaign at the moment because they need carers for childen between the ages if 12 and 16.
