feel lonely become bored do repetitive tasks that are too babyish do worksheets that
are too easy do sit down work that is discouraging
paid good money for those clothes Will have trouble getting the red paint out are concerned
the caregiver isn't paying enough attention to your child
YOUR CAREGIVER PROBABLY......
was aware of your child's special needs and interests spent time planning a challenging
activity for the children encouraged the children to try new things was worried you
might be concerned
Young children really learn when they are actively involved in play.....not when
someone is talking to them. There is a difference between "messy" and "lack of care."
Your caregiver made sure your child was fed, warm, offered new skills and planned
messy fun things to do because that's how young children learn!
Send your child in clothes that can get dirty! Keep extra old clothes at the site
for times when the child gets really messy. But remember, young children need time
to be kids.
