The purpose of my paper is to discuss the difference of group home behavior between boys and girls. According to the Child Welfare League of America, about 16 percent of foster children reside in group homes or institutions. (Matthew, 2003).In researching this information, it helps to make a determination if a group home with girls will be more challenging then a group home with boys. The interested target for this research will be a target age of 13 to 18 with approximately 50 group home individuals in the study. To come up with a fair estimate of choosing what type of group home, we will choose 50 boys to study and 50 girls. Since the group home is targeted for helping individuals with behavior problems, the study will show if the behavior problems for females will be less than with the males. An analysis comparing the two groups is needed over a period to track their behavior of three months may be sufficient, however, depending on the population samples, more time may be required for a accurate determination. The outcome will help determine if the group homes for girls will be a better fit or if the group home for boys will be better.
