Over the many years as a Foster Parent Jo Ann and her husband tried many unique parenting techniques to deal with different problems. She was a member of many online foster parent forums and publications and was a contributing writer and editor on many. Over one hundred of her articles and parenting tips have been published online over the years. Foster Parent Community a long established online publication uses her articles in their Foster Parent training curriculum. We are going to publish many of her parenting articles and tips on this web site in the hope they will be useful for Parents and Foster Parents alike.†††††††††
