IMHO some people have gone batty

Some of the mad ideas I have read on here in last couple of days

Bonkerz the lot of them


How they treat their nannies or au pairs





They work long hours for not much pay.



There are some very fair parents who are working hard AND treat their au pair with

RESPECT

KINDNESS



But others

who spend all their time finding something to moan about.........



Why can they not treat them the same way they would like their DD to be treated if she wanted to become an au pair?

Would they want their DD to work in same circumstances?


LOOKING AFTER CHILDREN IS THE MOST IMPORTANT JOB IN THE WORLD



THEY ARE OUR FUTURE


It is also the best job in the world and the most fun,

seeing their faces when they have completed a jigsaw puzzle

learnt how to build a tower with 3 bricks


Please remember to treat others as you would like to be treated

So we have gone from "Children are the most important thing in the world" to "respect the childminder" to this - there is no hope
