The American foster care system is overworked and underfunded. Every day, thousands of kids are hustled through the process. While most foster parents are good people, the system is ripe for being taken advantage of by some bad eggs. Foster parents receive, on average, $713 a month per child they are fostering. Some people treat their foster kids like cash cows and just do that absolute bare minimum to keep them alive until they get their next check.
In the video below, she tells her foster child that no one will ever adopt and that her biological daughter can have anything she wants off the menu, but he only has $4 to spend. When the daughter misbehaves, the mother blames it on him, leaving him in tears. While this is a reenactment, this sort of abuse happens every single day in this country and we have to make a stand to stop it. In the video, a woman leans over to the boy and gets his name and number to report the mother. That's the sort of behavior we need to be rewarding.
