Neighborhood Placements:

Initially, nearly all participants disagreed with the idea of placing children in the same neighborhoods where they were removed from their birth parents. (See the discussion in a later chapter about Family Centered Neighborhood Based practice.)

·       It’s too easy for the natural parent to get to the child.

·       The child needs a new environment.

·       Children in the same neighborhood will make fun of the child.

Some participants said that they could see the advantage of a child’s remaining in the same school district.
