That you could not deal with the parents at all? Just with certain families? Install a drive in window or something.. LOL
The almost 2yo dcg I have who has the demanding parents, watch tv while she eats, warm chocolate milk, me feed her instead of her feeding herself, bottles only, no cups... The mom has managed once again to throw me for a loop yesterday.
Dcg was out sick all last week and finally came back yesterday. They usually arrive right in the middle of our preschool time. I usually don't mind because dcg doesn't participate (because she has no interest, usually just wants to eat crayons) and just continue doing what we're doing and mom leaves after a few minutes of watching. Well, yesterday was the letter G and we were smack dab in the middle of making gingerbread cookies when they arrived. I did not stop what I was doing, just said, "Hey! Dcg is back! Come on over!" And I put some cookie dough down on the table for her to play with. Mom hovered for a few minutes. Then finally said, "Wasn't she even missed last week?" I said sure she was! Everyone kept asking about her, I'm glad she's back. Mom said, "Well, she sure didn't get much of a welcome back!" Uh.. we are in the middle of something here...
So, mom says, "Ok, I guess I'll just go." I said, "Ok, have a great day!" Then I could tell dcg wasn't interested in the cookie dough, so I had her make her handprint in it and transferred it to the cookie sheet. Just as I finished putting it on the cookie sheet, mom comes back in and just stares at me. I asked her if she forgot something... She said, "I want to talk to you." Yeah, ok, sure.. I'll stop teaching the class, stop helping the kids who were ALL asking me for help with their cookie dough and come talk to you. She said she just wanted to know if things were ok between us. I said yes, they are, I'm just trying to teach the preschool class. She said she just thought dcg would get more of a welcome back. I told her things were fine and I just needed to get back to the kids.
Was she expecting a welcome back party???
