I think you should shut up rich people don't care about nobody but there self they not helping nobody but there self they don't know the trouble it is when u don't have cuz they rich so I think if u broke and u got a good heart and wanna help a kid then do iti'd say if someone cannot afford to care for a child, they should not be foster parents. maybe they can submit day care expenses to fccs.

A rich person here... a very rich person, so you need to listen because I am rich and you are poor. It is you who should shut up, po' girl. I light my cigars with the hair of people like you... while it's still on their heads.

.........I know a set of foster parents that have 6 foster kids. They get 1000 dollars for each These people are rolling in the dough because of the money they get for foster care.plus a medical card and clothing vochers for their clothing. The foster parents buy their own clothes with the vochers plus have 4 New vehicles and live in a new house. They also have rental property that they collect thousands off of. Me on the other hand am raising 2 grandchildren who was in the care of childrens services because their parents died. I went to court, got custody of the kids and the money I get for them is 551 dollars for each kid per month. It is plenty for taking care of them. The only help I got from childrens services was 1 toy each at Christmas time. The money they get comes from social security from their fathers work history. I don't think it is right that they pay foster parents more. Not that I think I should get more. I think foster parents should get less. If I do well on less money they can too. I also have to deal with the doctor visits, grief counciling, going to the schools but it is enough to take care of their needs. Might I also add that these foster parents I know take the kids to a sitter quite frequently and when someone doesn't have much money 40 dollars a day is a bargain to them to watch these foster kids when the foster parents need a break for 2 to 3 days a week. The sitter has the kids almost as much as the foster parents.

Wow an your a teacher ! Shame on all of you for judging people you don't know , taking in children that no one else will. "Staying home and living off the rest of us " ... I would like to see a foster parent strike !!! Then what ? As a school teacher you should know first hand what some of these children are like and that in some cases there is not a dollar amount to place on them and the love they need . Maybe you should be a teacher out of love ! How many teacher strikes have we seen because you think your not paid enough of our tax dollars just to spend the day with all our children . You sound like a bad influence on children , find another job

ok then where do you except these children to go ? Why don't you open your home up for free and take care of kids . No you wouldn't do that . And no one would ! I open my home up to children's services to help provide a home for children who need a place to call home while their parents get help ( if they get help ). I do get paid . Enough to provide for the 4 kids I got . Have you looked at the prices of clothes and food and gas latey? I go threw a private agency and I don't get $1,000 a month . Your crazy to think this is a way to make money ! I get enough to provide for them. Connie you need to get a life ! Until you can open your doors up for free and let 4 kids in your home for free then keep your mouth shut ! Foster parents need that money to help raise these children ! This is a stressful heart braking job ! I do it out of love for kids and to help our country ! I get less then a $.80 cents an hour . Now do you think it's a way to get rich! You have no idea !
