I am both. Started as a working mom with my son in a center, then became a stay-at-home mom then started my home daycare.

I think I know what she's getting at:
yea I really think parents should have their own forum like we do, I have never seen posts from parents in the provider forum. (but I'm fairly new)
I read the parents forum because I want to know what parents think about the issues, but I never post except one time when I was posting just as a parent.

I know we all theorize on WHY parent do or more often, fail to do, certain things with their kids. I was hoping there were some parents here who might enlighten me...

Agh, I think I'll check it out on a day when I'm not totally irritated people in general. I don't understand why people are failing to teach their children basic manners, why they come in in the morning asking ME to discipline a child that behaved poorly on their time. I just don't get it...
