Enhancing Relationships: An Investigation of Foster Parent - Child Characteristics

The purpose of this study was to identify whether parenting characteristics that make up the overall parent-child relationship differ between foster parents and traditional parents in relation to their care for their children. In sum, 127 foster and traditional parents participated in this study. ...
A MANOVA was conducted showing that foster parents rated their relationship with their foster child significantly lower than traditional parents rated their relationship with their biological child. Specifically, foster parents rated themselves significantly lower in relation to Attachment, Communication, Discipline Practices, Parenting Confidence, and Satisfaction with School. The results of the study add to the literature regarding parent-child relationships for foster children and provide an opportunity for foster care agencies and community resources to develop collaborative relationships in an effort to support foster parents and enhance outcomes for foster children.
