EFP (Eavesdrop on Foster Parents): Overheard at a Supervised Visitation

“We do not hit people with cheese.”

“Do not start a fire right now. We don’t have time for that.”

“Just because the dog licks his butt, doesn’t mean you need to lick yours.”

Every parent (and mommy blog) talks about the things we say as parents that we never thought we would – but that now make perfect sense.

The world of foster parenting demands a whole new level of absurdity.

But you don’t have to take my word for it! I’m giving you a chance to Eavesdrop on Foster Parents!


EFP is our compilation of perfectly-rational, completely-ridiculous conversations – overheard in foster parent groups, court proceedings, team meetings, visits and more.


Overheard at a Supervised Visitation:
I’ve thought about becoming a foster parent, but I don’t know how you do it. I think it would too hard to send them home.
~~Birth father, who’s child was removed from his care, during a supervised visit with his daughter, to the foster mom who supervises his visits because he is not allowed to see his child without adult supervision.

No it’s your turn –tell me your ridiculous conversations –  they don’t have to be foster-care related.
