Switching from Family care to Daycare
02/10/2012 at 14:52 PM

Here is my problem. Mr aunt is currently watching my daughter who is 3 months old. There have been issues lately that make my DH and I question whether or not this arrangement is the best thing for our DD. The issues are regarding her safety and feeding schedule. Also, my Aunt does nothing but let our DD watch TV. My aunt isn't very approachable and tends to hold grudges if things do not go her way. After much thinking we decided to enroll our DD into daycare. Shew will be starting next month. My question is how do we break the news to my aunt? I thought to use the excuse that because she is more alert and starting to interact mkore that introducing her to other kids would be great for her.
Please let me know your thoughts. Thank you very much!

Children learn what they live. If you behave respectfully, and correct any language or attitudes that he brings home, then he'll be OK. It's likely that this other kid is just someone he doesn't like. There are some people I don't like, and some people I do, and some of the ones I don't like look and speak just like I do.


There is the age aspect. Tori and Alexander are a lot closer to the same age and developmentally closer. Children of four and five don't always want to be doing too much with what they think of often as 'babies'. I don't think this has anything to do with racism. Children have to be taught to be racist and I'm sure you won't let that happen.
