When you are caring for relative or kin children, it can be rewarding and fulfilling. There are many benefits to kinship parenting, including the joy of being close to your kin children as they grow and providing stability for them when they need you most. However, kinship caregivers often feel isolated and stressed by changes in their lives and the demands of caring full time for children they are raising and the impact it can also have on the relationship with the birth parent/s.
This workshop will guide participants through a discussion that will include: how kinship care changes and affects family dynamics; how these changes can result in challenges that may affect a caregiver’s ability to provide safety and permanence for the youth in their care; and approaches and strategies to cope with these challenges.
