Potty training and day care

I’ve been thinking about starting potty training and I know day cares always support and try to help! But I’m worried that if I take a 3/4 day weekend to really try and nail it in, will it all go down hill when he gets to daycare? They have 10 other kids to worry about, not just my sons pee schedule. What was your experience? They have those little (but real) potties in his classroom, should I... More

    Talk to them about their procedures. How often do they take him? Will they be on board with not using pull ups? Do they reward? Try and train him with those things in mind, if they will only take him once an hour, then try to train him to go once an hour at home. And I highly recommend after the 1st day or 2 to take him on short trips and get him used to regular toilets. Or u can probably get t... More

My 9 month old started full time daycare mid-May. Since then I've seen some worrying things when I've come to pick him up. There were the scratches on his face a few times when I picked him up from daycare - nothing huge, but the scratches were almost touching his eye, that's how close they got. Another time there was an ink stain on his pants. The staff said nothing at every instan... More

    Kieli that story of your firsthand account is terrifying! Ughhh imagine how many other evil “caregivers” are being paid a big sum of money to take care of our most precious children when in fact the opposite is true. I talk to my son after every time I pick him up from daycare. I ask questions and probe information out of him. I feel bad for the kids who can’t talk or communicate what’s happen... More

    Please switch daycares. This is not normal. Go to other daycares for tours and observation. Use your gut. I hope legal action is taken against these terrible people.
