Command Hooks – These are great for making space for hanging all sorts of things on the wall on short notice. I recommend keeping these on hand even if you are not planning to foster. We use them all the time! They are also a great safety resource for keeping cords and bind pulls out of the reach of small children.
We were giving ourselves an easy out, if we needed it, but that had consequences. No one had it on their radar to save hand me down kid things for us, so we started from scratch.
Give a tour of your home and the room, which may for young children need to include looking in wardrobes or under beds to provide extra reassurance of safety. You could also use this as an opportunity to introduce any house rules in a gently and friendly way – for instance, talking about bedtimes and when people generally use the bathroom in the morning.
You may have an idea of what ages and genders you are willing to say yes to, but understand that the “perfect situation” is probably not going to happen. It might happen on your first placement, if the agency is trying to please you, but it probably will not happen every single time they call you.
