Hi everyone, I have been running a dayhome for about 6 months now. I have in total 7 kids but I never have more then 5 kids in a day and even that doesn't happen very often. I have two 3 year old girls that I am having an issue with!! They don't seem to have an imagination! My own son is 4 and is always asking them to play and they either say no or they go with him and sit there and watch him, he is getting just as frustrated as me! I do playdough, crafts, outside play, coloring and painting...and they do each thing for MAYBE 20 mins if I'm lucky and then they are back sitting on the couch watching the other kids play! I find it so strange that it is both 3 yr old girls and they are not even sisters! Any ideas or suggestions?? I am going crazy with this and I spend my whole 8 hour day stressed and trying to get these girls to play!!!
Thanks!! And I'm so excited to have found this website it is great!!
