I am running a dayhome and my one child has parents whom are complete Morons.
I had to make them sign a contract because they destroyed my christmas by demanding I watch their child from boxing day until after new years.
I noticed very obvious ADD behaviours, and the child had extremely delayed development. I asked them outright to get a Developmental assessment so I could get him ready for school in septemeber.
They got a Physical assessment - sure it's nice to know what he weighs and how tall he is. But nothing else was done.
They constantly tell me they don't have long weekends off, which I know is Bull pucky.
They will leave their child in my care while they go shopping or take a nap at home. I have caught them on-line - gaming. Or they make the mistake of telling me the next day.
This Poor child has suffered so bad - 5 months ago he didn't know his last name, nor did he know how to count past 2. Shapes and colors were a complete mystery. He speaks worse then 2 year old, mumbles and talks in baby talk.
When the child got a concussion while chasing bubbles - the dad called it a "goose goose." WTF. I taught the child the proper word "concussion." And corrected the Dad.
I needed to vent this morning when the Dad told me their Child could not watch TV until Wednesday next week. Reason - he broke my son's toy and lied about it. When I left the punishment for telling a lie up to them, they totally went stupid. The child is 5. TV is not the center of his world. Where is the lesson learned? Oh look I get to play with more toys. He learned nothing. He broke another toy today while I was watching him - again he said it wasn't him. WTF. The only kids punished with this were my own kids.
Back to my point - I vented on my facebook page - I got a notice from the parents that this was not acceptable. I should not complain about their parenting on my facebook page. Whatever.
Anyone Else witnessing parents who should not be parents?
