Pros: Helping some parents to be better parents, and placing some children into homes that are deserved
Cons: Removing children from their homes because of living conditions, and parental neglect seeing the children cry
One on one home visits with clients, safety assessments of each home, answer calls and texts, staff with supervisor for direction, be on call for any possibility of removal of children, documenting, keeping – more... accounts up to date, keeping up with clients and their schedules making sure they attend the classes asked of them and they are not using drugs, drug testing.
Things cant always be always be perfect, time is more important than perfection, anything van be fixed, everyone lies, managing accounts working programs effectively and training others.
placing a child with someone that is wanting and deserving of a child while the parents refuse to care for a child and seeing them flourish in their environment, with families who care for them the way that they deserve to be cared for.
The Hardest Part of My Job:
Walking away from a child who you believe isnt being treated appropriately, or might be in danger of harm in the future and knowing that i can not doing anything due to laws and employer restrictions (in which has my hands tied) and keeping me from protecting said children from something bad if it hasnt already happened and not been reported.
Some of my fellow employees are angels, also have taught me how to handle some difficult situations, also how to prioritize appropriately, others have taught me learn when there are times things can be discussed, and when they cannot be discussed, there is a time and place for everything and not to trust just anyone you do not truly know or anything said by said people, also to stile be cautions and considerate of my self and others. – less
