Principles of Quality Parenting

  • All partners and stakeholders in our child welfare system possess unique value and acknowledge their roles and responsibilities in reducing trauma and its effects, and in achieving successful outcomes for Louisiana's children and families.
  • Children deserve foster parents and kinship caregivers who convey love and acceptance and who strive to co-parent with and demonstrate support of birth parents' efforts to be successful.
  • Foster parents and kinship caregivers are part of a compassionate, respected, and informed professional team that partner to put the child's best interests first.
  • Our entire child welfare system strives to give foster parents and kinship caregivers the resources and support necessary to meet the immediate needs of children as well as the opportunities to thrive long term.
