The Importance of Everyday Activities

The law recognizes the importance of allowing children in foster care the ability to take part in everyday activities, without the unnecessary involvement of case managers, provider agencies or the court system. The “Reasonable and Prudent Parent” standard incorporated in the law allows foster parents to give foster children permission to do daily, age appropriate, activities such as joining a school athletic team, getting a driver’s license or going to the beach with friends. Participation in these types of activities is important to the child's well-being, not only emotionally, but in developing valuable life-coping skills.
