Received Wednesday, March 5, 2008- Perspective & Opinion
I went to work on a very part time basis for a family last November. It's not working out for me. I am unable to warm up to the children, mainly because my child care values are grossly different from the parents. I feel a child should say "Please" and "Thank -You" they feel a child should not have to beg. I feel children shouldn't interrupt adults, they feel a child should speak when they please. I feel a good breakfast is needed before sweets can be given and they feel the children can eat whatever they please beginning at 6AM. I want to be as diplomatic as possible and I am not very good at resignation so I am seeking help in how I should say it. When I was hired the mother told me their last sitter left to go to college but now the dad told me a few weeks ago they have had quite a bit of trouble keeping sitters because no one gets their children. So at least I know, It's not me! Thanks!
