    If and when there are going to be other people in your home when daycare kids are there, I would tell them about that. Beyond that, it's none of their business.

    I can see saying that you have a previous commitment if they invite you to something on a specific date. But what if they say, 'Oh we should get the kids together at the park one day.' Then what do I...

    No, I don't offer other choices. You eat what I make or you can choose to be hungry. Catering to picky eaters keeps them picky.

    That being said, I do ask parents when the children start to give me...

    I wouldn't stress too much over it at this point honestly. Wait and see if they do anything.

    Don't say anything to the parents of the other child in your care. If they ask, just say the family no...
