I have 3 boys of my own. We also have 2 foster girls.(6 and 7 years old, sisters). We are having difficulties w/discipline. Go figure! But, we need some new ideas for the foster children. we cannot spank them so we need to do something that will get their attention. in general,they are REALLY well behaved. The boys and girls do not get along well. So, we have used time-out, time alone in their rooms, one on one time w/each other, and so many other things....nothing seems to get through to ANY of our kids.. what do we do now?Answer Question

You really need to treat ALL off the children the same even your own. Spanking your boys cause they are your own children isn't fair to the boys or for the foster girls to see. I grow up in a foster home from 14 till i was 17 and the things that I Saw with the difference on treating the children was just as messed up as my home life was for those years. You need to treat all the children the SAME in the house so cut the spanking out all together and stay constant especially with the girls they need someone that is gonna show them that they care and love them, foster children: we have a lot of thoughts in our heads and we are full of empty no one gives a crap feelings and sadness inside us.
