good day
Your site is very helpful...
Thank you...

When I did daycare, I had a client for about 3 weeks who came to me because he was behaving just like your son. His parents were going to school and his mom was doing her student teaching so they just needed care for a short time. The staff at the daycare that he was at was frustrated because he cried all day long.

I requested that the first day one of the parents come and work on a project for an hour or two, while he got accustomed to my home, to me, and to the other children. Of course, he was very comfortable, because his dad was here the whole time.

The next day was Saturday, and I arranged for them to bring the boy in, say goodbye, and leave him with his stuff as if it were going to be a whole day. Dad drove away. Just out of sight. We settled in, and then within five minutes, Dad came back. The little boy had learned at the old daycare that if he cried long enough, his family would come and get him. At my daycare, he learned that they would come and get him even if he didn't cry. He was a happy little boy for the whole three weeks. I think he would have been happy in my care for years.
