Daycare teachers have a tough job, taking care of young children while their parents are at work. However, sometimes parents can make the job even tougher with the things they say. Here are some of the scariest things parents have said to daycare teachers.
“I’d actually prefer they don’t nap. Can you accommodate that?” Young children that don’t nap usually act up the most, which makes the daycare’s job harder.
One person said, “As (the parent) is handing me her ten month old she says, “Dad and I will be home all day since we’ve both got the flu.”” Unfortunately they didn’t have the common courtesy to think that the child might also be sick and contagious.
‘“Johnny acts out like that because he’s bored. We think he’s gifted.” Meanwhile Johnny is four and can’t identify a circle, doesn’t recognize his name and holds his pencil upside down.’
“”She/he was up all night!” Extra scary if the kid is still in their pajamas.” Again, sleepless children are the worst to deal with.
Blaming the Teacher
“My kid isn’t misbehaving, you are just a horrible teacher. You’ve had it out for my kid since you started here because you’re racist.”
“Then my director made me apologize to the parent for making her feel that way. Meanwhile, in the span of 5 seconds, my director and I watch this child hit someone in the back of the head on the way past, kick a kid that was sitting, and then double foot jump stomp a kids train track they were building.”
“Why don’t two women with degrees know how to handle my child?“
You’re A Trigger
“Is my son having tantrums because you are a white woman with black hair? Could you be a trigger?”
“Please don’t tell my child that they have a peanut allergy. Also don’t post any signs outside of the classroom stating that there is an allergy. And do not ‘segregate’ my child during lunch”. As a general rule of thumb, children should know their allergies, right?
“She’s not hungry, the books and the pediatrician confirm that’s enough formula for her age.”
“She never has a blowout at home. It’s odd that it’s only here.”
