Tuck Me In Cards - From the National Foster Parent Association
Tuck Me In Cards offer foster families a new and inexpensive way to communicate. By referring to a card with predetermined questions, talking about everything is redirected to the activity on the card and focuses less on the person (at first). The goal is to, eventually, create a line of communication that can happen anytime based on the original use of the cards.
