See this little girl:
Well when I attempted to drop her off at the Y child watch area she throw hysterical fit. Screaming, clinging, sobbing. Sigh...it was rough.
Now mind you the teachers did not help. Although they offered to take her and did come over they will clearly annoyed. As not one but two teachers gave loud audible huffs throughout the time I was in the room. I can only imagine what they said to her when I wasn't there if they were acting this way when I was. I thought about calling the Y but don't want to make it worse for MGirl when I take her back. And plus I've been there before (although its not like MGirl is a problem this was only the third time she had ever even been there!).
And no I didn't just drop her and run. I took her and tried to engage her in an activity or find her a friend to play with. She wasn't having it.
You would think as an old kindergarten teacher this wouldn't bother me.....but now that it is my own kid its rough. Not so easy being on the other side of the fence (and doesn't help that my child is 3 years younger then my kindergarteners were!).
Hubby says she has to learn to deal with it and just keep taking her. Nani says avoid the situation for now and deal with it later. I say "WHAT DO I DO??" She has never been in a childcare setting before - not even once. In fact she has never even been watched by someone that she wasn't related to. Yeah this could be rough.
What would you do? Or should I say what have you done?
