World’s Greatest Jobs

Foster Parent and Substitute Teacher:  World’s Greatest Jobs, a book by Lois Simmons.  It  reveals truth about managing kids with difficult behaviors.  Each job can add supplemental income for a family.  They can certainly help needy kids.  Hence, this book is a tool to recruit great foster parents.  While today, many Americans have abandoned the words of the Creator.   People have become explicit, complicit and negligent in abusively mistreating families and children.  Where’s the outrage?

While serving the Creator as a trained therapeutic foster parent, you learn a lot about the results of family separations and the emotional trauma inflicted on children.   It’s very difficult to get close to these children.  It takes a deep connection and dependency on the Creator to receive the love, patience and understanding necessary to function as a good therapeutic foster parent.  Without these qualities you could further damage an already traumatized child.  You must have a strong spiritual life to be able to look beyond faults and discover the needs within and proceed to act out of loving-kindness and tender mercy to fulfill those needs.

Foster Parent & Substitute Teacher:  WORLD’S GREATEST JOBS

Forward (Part 1)

Foster parents and substitute teachers just get no respect. So, how can I think these are two of the world’s greatest jobs?

They are, if you learn how to master them. After you’ve learned to master them, you might even develop a passion for them and not want to do any other kind of work. I know that everyone who reads the title of this book will think I’ve lost my mind.

foster-parent-substitute-teacherI had to lose what was left of my mind in order to renew my mind to truth and facts. I had to have spiritual guidance to get me to the point of knowing I needed help in what I was trying to do. As long as I tried to do things the way I thought they should work, the more I failed.

Not many people are willing to take on the position of a foster parent or a substitute teacher. There is no scarcity in jobs fostering children and if you can find schools with behavior problems, finding a substitute position is not a problem. There is always a need for both.

Some of these positions only require a high school education and a state license in various places. Some places require a little college to substitute. If you work with children today, a background check will be required.

My best advice to anyone who would like to pursue this opportunity is not to do it just to get paid. You must have a desire or some inner spirit prompting you to really want to help children or you will make your life miserable. I will walk you through my experiences in which I hope you will find that through it all, I’ve learned to enjoy what I do.
