Michael Welcome to the forum

Yes, there are a lot of tried and true lessons here from providers and parents that have taken the time to add to our ever growing childcare content. Feel free to ask any questions regarding this forum including our social groups and member status.

Dragonfly Hi! I'm a new member here and I already LOVE this site! Found it a couple of days ago and have been reading and gathering lots of great advice and other info. I have been in child care in a variety of settings, nanny, child care centers, children's home, and home day care, which is what I am currently doing. I've been somewhat frustrated lately and was searching for answers mostly regarding parents. My frustration lessoned when I realized my parents are not unique and other providers have the same problems! I also realized I need to re-do my handbook/contract and actually have the parents SIGN the handbook. I'm very laid back and expected people to READ and respect my policies. I hate having to tell parents things like "please bring your child (who is potty trained) with underwear ON"! (As opposed to no underwear because the child "refused" to put any on). I found tips on how to discuss hard issues with parents and enforcing my policies. I know there is still a ton of info on here! So glad I found this : )
