I've just been given notice for an afterschoolee.....I seem to be losing a lot at the moment.

This is the 4th recently....I do keep getting more I signed up another one today, but I'm concerned that I don't seem to deal with parents very well.

I thought that after a very complicated chat with this Mum last Friday (carefully put - as I think her 5 yo was bullying my 7yo) we had decided on a very sensible course of action to solve/alieviate the problem. My real issue is that I came away from the discussion with the impression that it was all sorted and it wasn't

It's so confusing

oh dear :/

are you going to try and get another chat in?

RTKangaMummy Tue 17-May-05 13:27:49

Oh dear KMc

Did she agree that her child was a bully?

Could mindee have lied about what happened and so make it sound worse to her?

KM, sorry to hear that.

I find the hardest part of childminding is the relationships between my 2 kids and the mindees....

Hopefully you'll get some more enquiries soon

Lunavix - I'm not that bothered - It's just that I misunderstood that gets me down

RTKM - the mum admitted that her dd was sly and manipulative.....and no particular incident was mentioned...imagine describing your child like that....

SSD as I said I'm not loosing any money (new child is twice what other child was)....

It's just annoying

RTKangaMummy Tue 17-May-05 21:11:08

Perhaps you are better off without her

It is not fair on your DD is it?

KatieMac Tue 17-May-05 21:37:28

That's it and Dd has asked if she has to stop playing with other child. I asked why?

Cos she says that if I (DD) won't play with her, then she will tell you (me) that dd has been naughty.

So it's blackmail as well

How cruel

RTKangaMummy Tue 17-May-05 21:40:56

That is awful

Your poor DD

You are well rid of her

KatieMac Tue 17-May-05 22:01:09

The sad thing is that it has been happening for a reasonably longtime - maybe since Christmas.

I've really let DD down

However I'm really sorry for the child - what must her life be like for her to act that way?

RTKangaMummy Tue 17-May-05 22:03:23

No its ok KMc

At least it will stop now

Your DD will be fine now

But yes @ 5 years old to behave and talk like that
