I am at my wits end. I have a family with a 3 yr old and a 6 yr old.
Problem #1- Mom didn't like my rates and gave me a hard time telling me I am to expensive, even though she gets her daycare paid for but due to them only paying their rates there would be a parent portion due each week since she doesn't come much during the school year. I told her sign or leave, she and ex (who is a good guy very understanding) decide they will just have me watch the girl in the morning instead of grandma so I get atleast 3 hours and subsidy will pay for most of the weekly rate, so she signed problem averted.
Problem#2- Mom shows up yesterday morning and asks me if I have girl toys (babydolls) bc her 6 yr old is upset and doesn't want to come here because shes bored. I have had no complaints before. I have books, blocks, beads with string, coloring books (some that are strictly girls coloring books) stuffed animals that they play babys with, action figures, toy cars, sliceable fruit, etc. Not one complaint until the first day she is here after christmas. I tell mom I have unisex toys and she says well are you gonna get girl toys you do have girls you watch you know. EXCUSE ME!?! I told her my business and will not be told how to run it and that I can look into the need bc between christmas and birthdays and regular bills I have been tight on money. I was livid over this.
Problem#3- Mom has not called,txted, informed me at pick up or drop off girls won't be coming till later/ at all, multiple absences bc mom always seems to have the day off of work.
What should I do I am seriously at my wits end and am tired of this mom and her attitude and bossiness. She is not my boss I am. We will see how drop off goes today maybe I will be one family less if she acts anything like yesterday.
