Parents-educators: how much do families in the United States receive who have taken a child on time
Surfing the Internet. Suddenly an advertisement pops up: Become foster parent - "become a parent-educator", if literally. I was curious what this thing was, especially since the advertisement was presented as a potential job. It turns out that these are temporary parents, to whom they give an orphan child for a short time - until he finds a foster family.
“If you have a place in your heart and home” - it is no coincidence that the main slogan of that announcement. The most important requirement is not just to provide the child with housing and food, but to provide a feeling of security, love, and help in difficult situations.
How much is paid for such work?
I must say right away that the state pays. The income figures for “temporary parents” vary and are highly state-specific. According to ZipRecruiter, in California, families receive an average of about $ 3000 per month per child. According to Knott Agency, between $ 1000 and $ 2600.
In any case, this amount will more than cover the cost of the child. The California minimum wage that an adult can live on is $ 13 per hour or $ 2080 per month.
The announcement states that it is necessary to pass the selection and obtain a license, only after that the child will be entrusted to the family. I think this is very correct, otherwise there is a risk of turning a good idea, where they help a child to adapt in the world, into a dishonest business.
