Do I have the right to know?
I work through an agency. I have been assigned to a new family this summer as my current mother won't be working. This past weekend, I went to watch the new kids for an afternoon to get to know them and the house better. I was interviewed by the father and have only spoken to the father...never the mother. I was informed at the interview that it was very important that I have a clean driving record as the mother had a dui. Well, I finally met her when I went to see the kids this weekend. She was wearing a brace on her hand and seemed a tad off. When she saw her daughter and I playing in the girls room, she waved and said hi to the child as if it were her niece she isn't close to and not actually her child. The father apologized to me and said that his wife would sleep for most of the afternoon while he was out. I am not sure what is going on. Was there an accident? Is she on pain medications or did something get seriously injured? I am wondering if I have the right to know as the moms odd behavior may have huge effects on the 3 kids. The family, nor the agency said anything.
