Hi, I am 12 years old and a foster child in a family I like very much, but they don’t always understand me.
CG: Dear Julia, there will be times when your foster parents don’t understand you just as you probably don’t understand them sometimes. My family and I are the same – it is part of normal family life. My advice would be to talk to them and tell them when you feel they do not understand your position. Good communication is essential in any family but sometimes we forget to talk to our loved ones and just assume they will know what we feel like. Talk to them and explain your worries and I am sure it will help. Cathy x
