For those of you following previous posts of mine -- I sent out the official email ending parent camera use!

I AM SO EXCITED! Do you know how long it'll take me to lose that feeling? If I have a freakin' wedgie, I have to go into my bedroom to pick it! Been doing that for 1.5 year now!

I went into it with the beliefs or philosophy that I want to do with this daycare what I would want my son to have in a daycare. I don't think I'd ever place my son in a daycare without them, BUT thats without them at all. As long as they have them for protection/liability, or proof what happened to my kid, etc..I wouldn't mind. SO I am reassuring parents they are still up recording for private use and security but no longer for parent access.

Thanks everyone! Hopefully this will make me enjoy what I do more. I think I felt more of an employee than a business owner with potential eyes on me at all times.

Hahaha at the wedgie comment!! I can feel your relief from this far away!
I will be curious how your 'check in 19 times' dcd will feel though. And ya know, who else might have been checking in with him? Just never know who's watching these days.

Congrats! These things always give me anxiety going in, but once I give parents notice I always feel so much better.

Good move. It was obvious from previous posts that the cameras were bothering you and it is your business, so choices are up to you.

Congrats! IMO the parents who trust you won't miss the cameras, and if they don't trust you, do you really want to be caring for their children anyway?
