    This isn't a yes or no question, even if some people seem to think it is.   It depends on the existing court order, what the judge says, what the social worker or child advocate recommends, and in some limited cases with an older child, what the child wants.   In most places, if the child has been removed from parents for abuse or worse, the parents may not even be allowed to know where the child is.  In other cases, regularly scheduled meetings are set up.  Why are you asking?  That matters, too.

    Not really sure but they shouldn't be too pushy or rude its a toygh situation but if they insist on getting slapped deny the parents or don't.

    Depends on the court order.  In general, they do have SOME control over it, because it's their house. Not to mention, it's not unheard of for a child to be in foster care because their parent lost all rights forever.

    To an extent, yes. If the agreement states that the biological parent can have visitation, then the foster parent has to abide by the agreement. BUT the bio-parent generally can't just drop by whenever they want, that can be far too disruptive to the family and confusing to the child. Also if the foster parent has reason to believe the child may not be safe around the bio-parent (ie, bio-parent shows up drunk or high, or gives indications that they might be preparing to flee), then it's the foster parent's job to protect the child and contact an appropriate authority to deal with the situation.

    No. Social Services (in most places) decides if/when the biological parent has any visitation and how often but there might be some consultation with the foster parent/s regarding the child's schedule.

    I would hope so. If I were a foster parent and there is a schedule of school, homework and activities for child, don't show up without an agreed upon time, or place.
