New Here : )
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 : )

Hi! I am fairly new too :). I also love it here because we all are basically dealing other the same stuff no matter where we are from :). I have also found that - generally- even if people disagree they do it kindly...
