    I currently have a little boy (4 next month) that I am absolutely positive could be "diagnosed" as having ADHD. I can guarantee you that if I attempted to broach this subject with mom, she would...

    I serve morning snack at 9:15, lunch at 12:15 and afternoon snack at about 3:30/45.
    I don't offer breakfast, but if early arrivals wished to bring breakfast from home, I am ok with that. Otherwise,...

    Coud be a quiet summer! o_O

    Hey folks!!
    If there is one thing I have noticed about this business, it is that by nature it is very "ebb and flow". Rarely do providers have the exact same group of children from 10m to 6years....

    This is a little bizarre to me... LoL
    I would be really ticked if a parent actively tried to pull other families from my care. If she wants to go, great. And if you want to accept the youngest...

    I went back and re-read our responses, and not once did anyone state that it was "acceptable" to yell. Most of us agreed that it is NOT very effective. But not everyone communicates the same. Some...

    Unless you know or TRULY suspect that they are being abused (do they have bruises or odd injuries?), this is none of your concern. How do you know that they are emotionally scarring them? Yelling may...

    The wheezing, and the cough to the point of vomiting, would be my cut-off point. As a mom to an asthmatic, the wheeze is not something to mess with. Having said that- is he wheezing or does he have...

    Should add, too- I don't care how they pay me. I prefer email transfer, as it is quick and easy. But I still accept cheques and cash as well.

    It is common practice in my area that payment is required before the first of the month, for the month's fees in full.

    Thanks all!!
    I was feeling pretty frustrated yesterday. I am glad to know that it isn't out in left field to ask the kids to maintain some kind of decorum while in my home. LoL

    House rules- question/poll

    Hey all!! I hope everyone is enjoying the spring that has *finally* arrived?

    I was thinking the other day, I wonder if other home daycares have the same sort of "house rules" as I do?

    Yep, it goes both ways! Your little guy will learn that we don't necessarily get to love on anyone and everyone, and daycare girl needs to learn to say "No, thank you". It will come, just keep...

    "Lovies" are welcome at my house, but only at naptime. And honestly, a twin size comforter being dragged from home to home seems silly to me?
    But in this case, I would likely have either bagged it...

    I would be telling this family that the varying schedule does not work for you or their daughter. They either need to figure out a routine, or you will have to fill the spot.

    Are the cats peeing, or spraying? It is a bit of a different odor, I find.
