Mine are great, I have one regular mindee (I met her mum on my icp course - luckily for me she decided cm not for her but asked me to be hers!) and do ad-hoc cm-ing for 3 families in the village I live in who are all friends. I do feel for cms whose mindee parents cause the cms to moan, I do feel very lucky and have told mindee parents that too!

Mine are all pretty good, although, have one who calls at 6.03 to say she's going to be late for the 6pm pick up!! However, same parent often tells me how grateful she is that I am so flexible.
Also, one Mum brought me flowers last week because she was 10 minutes late picking up!

I have brilliant minding parents at the moment - that certainly doesn't mean they always pay on time, drop-off on time (instead of early), pick-up on time (instead of late), and they sometimes "forget" to tell me that their child has been chucking up all night, or is off school sick, and they definitely don't buy me enough chocolate ... but they are all still lovely. I have made some lifelong friends.

I have great sets of parents, I have been lucky and never really had and real problems. All mine are great payers, and phone even if they are going to be five minuites late. The only problem I have is trying to get a couple of then to actually go home, its a great time of testing when mum and cm are both there!
