Tip of the Month: Discipline Looks Different in a Pandemic

Dear HRT foster parents,
Hello! I hope you and your family are healthy and doing well! I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you and recognize the work that you do! Please know that your dedication to the children does not go unnoticed. During this pandemic, it is especially important that we at HRT let you know, We Appreciate You! We know that there have been many changes with how visiting is conducted amongst so many other things and you have all been so supportive of these changes.

We share the same sentiment as DCS Director Mike Faust in that maintaining compassion, patience and support for each other must be heightened during these times.

Discipline Looks Different in a Pandemic

It might seem strange to respond to misbehavior with support and empathy, but kids right now need “much more compassion than ever before.”
