Yes, there are bad foster parents out there without a doubt just as there are bad biological parents, physicians, educators, dentist, etc. With saying that does not mean that every person in that typical category is good or bad for that fact.
Men teachers have taken advantage of young girls and even some boys for that matter, sexually, but that does not mean that all male teachers are perverts. My husband is a special educational teacher, and it would totally be wrong to assume that. Granted there are some parents and others that have this mentality, which is wrong. Now days, the female teachers are out numbering the male teacher in this instance, but strange how no one is accusing that all female teachers are out to harm children.
There is good and bad with everything in this world and it is totally wrong to place everyone in the bad category just because. Can a person really base their entire views on six out of thousands of foster parents? Maybe the question is, should they?
I have personally seeing my fair share of bad foster parents. Heck, some even work with the same agencies that I do. But to go as far as to say that most or the majority are that way would be over the top.
Yes, everyone understands that the foster care system is a complete mess but the foster parents are the ones to put up with it day in and day out. Believe me, we do not enjoy taking the crap that we have to, but it is something that we deal with to help and parent our foster children.
It is quite easy to get on our throne of judgement, question people on their parenting choices, styles, methods, etc. yes, even including biological parenting. Time to time I find myself going there thinking if I was faced with that situation I would react so totally different. Then I remember. When I was faced with a similar situation it was not so easy in the trenches as it appeared up on my throne of judgement.
