Default Anyone Term Drop In Care

I have a child this week for drop in care for spring break. Heís 5 and seriously lacks discipline at home. Extremely disrespectful and test boundaries. Has already told me he doesnít care what I have to say when I told him to stop throwing the wooden blocks. Has anyone termed drop in care? Iím just trying to make it to the end of the week knowing itís temporary. If he was Iím enrolled as a full time child, I would absolutely call for pick up and be done. I just keep telling myself that I have 4 more days left. 😩😩😩😩

Part time, full time or drop in..... that type of blatant disrespect (at that age) and/or physical aggression and you are no longer welcome in my home.

At pick up today, I'd tell the parent you are no longer willing to provide services for a child that is that rude.

....and as a drop in to boot...most kids aren't that rude until they've at least established some type of relationship with the caregiver they are dissing.

NOTHING wring with "terming" today.

I would. I can't think of a single incident in which I needed the money enough that I'd be willing to deal with that more than a single day.

I agree with Blackcat. I wouldn't even entertain his returning and enjoy the rest of my regular week.

I would just refund at pick up, and tell them that based on his behavior you aren't willing to provide further care.

I would be even more inclined to term a drop in because there is absolutely no real reason to work on the issue, this kid is not my consistent paycheck!
