3 Steps Toward Child Welfare 
Whether you are a foster parent, social worker, psychologist, or caregiver, it's important to establish these three key points for the welfare of the children in your care. 

1. Build Support Systems: There are three main support systems that a child should always have. A formal system (ex: doctor), informal (ex: friends), and a family support system. 
2. Learn How to Communicate: Build an environment where the child feels safe to express their thoughts, feelings, and concerns. It's important that you learn how the child processes information so you can establish the best communication method. For example, there are children who respond well to strict and clear rules, and others who prefer general guidelines. 
3. Advocate for Them: 
Sometimes children feel neglected or like they are not being heard. It's important to find a place and time where they perceive that you advocate for them so they understand that you are there to support them.
