ETHOS Dr. Tanner [Medical Director]- “ if the program can goes good and really helps them sucand allows them to bond, then it does change them and they are doing what they are suppose to be doing that’s good but I don’t think a lot of these children have a great chance in life cause their mothers aren’t just taking care of themselves or are not doing the stuff they need to be doing.” Chris Kerl
Every day we encounter the various relationships we have in our lives. One of the most significant relationships is that of a child and parent. Inevitably, there is a connection between parent and child whether good or bad. The relationship of parent and child is reason enough to be partial. Niko Kolodny, author of “Which Relationships Justify Partiality?
There has always been a way for children to be cared for in the United States. In the early 1800s orphan asylums were the most popular way for homeless children to be taken care of. Then institutional care came around, where children were taught to grow up as quickly as possible. Placing-out was then created in the 1850s to use instead of the institutions. This form of foster care sent children to the western states to live in rural homes.
Treatment One The first treatment plan is to reduce Adam’s fear of sleeping alone in a room at night by himself without his foster parents sleeping next to him. Foster parents state that even though he is scared to sleep alone, he does show great strength in being able to communicate effectively when he is scared at night. Of course he communicates by yelling for help, but at least he doesn’t sit in silence when he becomes scared. Being able to communicate is recognized as strength.
A significant amount of children in today’s society belonging to the foster care system will never gain the knowledge of their full potential. This system can provide a better life for some children or be abusive and dangerous for others. Ashley Rhodes grew up in a child care system where she acquired a difficult childhood and a failing mother, however, she gained her success today while in the system. Being taken away from your biological family and placed the foster system is unfortunate for any child to say the least. There are, however, on occasion, positive aspects that arise from such circumstances.
Countless of the children who have turned into an orphan and have no other relative whom of which will be responsible for care of them, while undergoing either fatalities or hardships frequently enter “the system”. Numerous individuals have the belief that if a child has gone into the system then most are depraved nevertheless the verity, they do not have anyone else.

The Impacts of Foster Care Foster care has become a fast growing corporation, that impacts the lives of many children from the ages of infancy to 18 years old. Around “415,129 children were in foster care on September 30th, 2014, a 4% increase from 2012”( "Statistics on Foster Care." FosterClub. N.p., n.d. Web. 10 Nov. 2016.).
We have all heard the stories on the news, seen them on our televisions, and possibly even known someone who has had to go through the process of Foster care. Sometimes this is a great thing for the child, but sometimes we unfortunately have to hear the tragic stories of children who inevitably fall through the cracks of the system. Sadly, the children who fall through often have the potential to be so much more than what their circumstances allow. The person they would develop into is stifled by where they came from. Foster care was designed to take children from a harmful environment and place them into one that will help them flourish for the time they are placed in a particular home.

I can determine if pony boy Curtis should stay with his brothers or go to foster care and get taken to another family to live with.

Ethics is the sole base of distinguishing between right and wrong; however, right and wrong are controversial issues that usually are determinate through other words like good and bad. It is clearly evident that the context within a sentence can determine the actions done were good or bad. For example, Chaloner stated, “It was so good of you to bake me a cake”, but there is a possibility that the ingredients in the cake were bad so the context indicated good but in reality is was not a good deed. Laws are usually based on good ethics; therefore, it is sometimes easier to make decisions because certain laws require certain actions to be completed.
