Can people get a brain?

I only worked 3 days last week as I took Thursday off and Friday was a holiday. My 2.5 yr old lil girl kicked me in the stomach because of a tanturm that was caused by mom bringing in a stupid toy. I am pretty sick of mom so this just sent me over the edge. The girl did not settle for 2 hrs. When I told mom at pickup she didnt even say sorry to me or anything which pissed me off more. So I told mom as of Aug 15th I will open at 8am instead of 7am. Well shes pissed cause she cant do the 8am drop off cause she starts work at 8am. Well boo whooo like I give a rat. She has been nothing but trouble for the last few months so I could care less if she leaves. I wont be able to completly shut down my dayhome in Sept like planned, but with her gone that leaves me only a 1 1/2 yr old that is a breeze. Im not sure if parents understand that I dont do daycare to help them out I do it to help my bills...LOL

I always see you posting about your home daycare and wondered if you knew that iVillage has a board where other home daycare providers chat?

Here, check it out:

My initial response to your question was no.

After reading your post, my response is still no.

I would hope you enjoy doing home daycare and do it for that reason as well as to pay your bills. I'd be none too pleased if my son's caregiver just up and changed their hours. We actually have a contract to protect us both. If you can't handle a 2.5 yo kicking you and it made you so angry, perhaps you should leave such line of work. Mom shouldn't have to apologize; the child should. I'd make it clear to parents to never bring toys in when dropping of their child so this type of thing doesn't happen again. Setting clear boundaries from the beginning is essential to having a great home daycare.

Please edit your post and remove the R word. That term is against TOS and very inappropriate. Here is a PSA regarding the term so you understand why it is so awful to use it. I've also reported your post.

I do try not to use it, but old habits die hard.

Good morning!

While the word in question is considered to be offensive to many, it isn't considered to be a personal attack or against Terms of Service in this case since it was someone's opinion about a non-member.

When in doubt, it’s always best to report questionable posts and then leave it to the moderators to handle rather than discussing it on the board where feelings could be hurt.

I hope this helps. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to e-mail me at pboards@mail.ivillage.com with ATTN: JEN in the subject line.
