If it was that big of a deal to them, they should have spoken up at the time, not saved all the details as weapons against you later.
exactly. Good bye!

coolconfidentme I would term & attached her letter to it. She needs a reminder of how petty, childish & rude she is.

grandmom Ditto for comments about employee.

Talk to her face to face. "I'm thinking you aren't happy right now" and then let her talk. Don't say a word, till you're ready to negotiate, apologize, or term.

sharlan I would have a heart to heart with my assistant and term the family.

Your asst works for you, not the family.

Parent should not have involved your employee in business affairs.

bklsmum I would term! Did your assistant give you the letter right away? If not, I'd be mad!

This lady just needs to grow up and quit making problems were there are none.
In that case, I would term. I kept my first client and of course when I became licensed and had to make changes to follow regs they were not happy. Became passive aggressive the rest of the time. I wish I had termed

Blackcat31 If this mom is so unhappy that she has literally kept track of all the "wrongs" for a year now, why is she still enrolled?

You'd think she would have left on her own due to her not being happy there.

Josiegirl I'd be filling her spot asap and then tell her to kiss my grits.

What would you do?How would you respond to her?? I just don't know what to do she said she didn't want to make me mad and she doesn't want to find another daycare. What do I do??
If it was a current client? I would address it head on. "Sally, I received your letter yesterday. What day works for a conference?" If she dithers or hesitates I would be clear "Sally, we can't go on like this. We need to either meet and clear the air or you need to find care that better suits your needs."

If the client had already left? Nothing. Just enjoy that I don't have to have a seat at her circus
