When we found the Glasser Institute we found the method we needed to help us reach our goal. Christianity teaches how to reach God, how to know you are loved and forgiven. We share whenever we can, whenever the children ask. Choice Theory teaches how to have effective control in your life. It helped us build good relationships, good boundaries, confidence. social skills, ability to recognize good people in life, make and keep good goals, prepare for the future, and live the life we were teaching.
We found that we can also teach this to other people who would like to use their life helping children. We can and do train all kinds of people, and have had in our agency, at one time or another several inter-racial couples, deaf parents, blind parents, single parents, grandparents, parents with no children and parents with several natural children.
It is difficult for some people to relax and let us train them. They believe they were good parents for their own children and they won't need any help with someone else's children. Doing well as a parent or teacher, coach, etc, is a perfect place to begin from. With the specialized training we offer the job of foster parent will be so much more positive and make you a more rounded parent, ready to handle the challenges that await you.
Don't be afraid to try. We and our children are waiting for you.
