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

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


·

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.
