Re: Why are some people so anti when they should be for it??
Mama, you need to take the above advice. You could be blamed for mis-treatment to the baby if she gets a rash or whatever. You need to do the contract thing, and raise your price enuf to cover diapering expenses. I would get advice from a prof. daycare worker as well. A "REAL" B&M daycare would not tolerate that behavior, so why should you?
Also- if she is so broke, how is she going to pay you for your services????? I would be worried about NOT getting paid. Maybe ask for pmt.s in advance, thats what I did when I used to have an in home daycare. I also charged "late pick up fees". *some* Parents like to take advantage of nice people like you.......
happy (and busy!) mama to 9! and proud Grammy to my 1st grandbaby!
