It's All About the Money

While in some cases, such as the Easter Grinch, children's aid embezzles gifts for children, in others it gives money to children to alienate them from their parents. Below are two posts from a public forum.



It's All about the Money

I recently asked my daughter why she was having second thoughts about coming home and what she told me was a huge surprise. She said, "It's all about the Money".

Seems the CAS are handing her large amounts of cash to stay in care longer than she has too. How is a parent to fight this new tactic used by the CAS?

It should not be all about the money but it is in more ways than one. Funny thing is she has not had so much as one hour counseling to date and the CAS have done absolutely nothing to help her.

I hear you there. The foster parents used to give my oldest daughter money when she was good. I felt it was just feeding her to not be on her best behaviour at home as I could not afford to give her money for every chore she did everyday.

I don't think it is right, yes a set amount of allowance is normal but paying a kid to do what is expected of them in the first place is not ok especially when they are paying a kid to be good in foster care knowing full well the parents can't afford to keep it up IF the child gets returned.
