One thing they need are foster parents who are dead serious about helping a child, and not only fostering for a check that will be sent to them every month. Foster children need stability. Social workers need fewer case loads so they could arrange to visit children more often, and make sure they are safe and being treated fairly. I was a foster kid for a couple of years. I had a family who actually put locks on their refrigerator and cabinets so I wouldn't eat their food. I was only allowed to eat during designated meal times and drink "four fingers" of juice at every meal while their biological children ate and drank with abandon in front of me. I had another family who would lock me out of their house in my nightgown for hours at a time if I got too "emotionally charged". Yeah, I would have my moments, but I had lost my mom, my house, my brother, and everything I had every known in a span of three months. I think what foster kids need is proper support from well supervised, quality foster parents.
