Advice

So I found a daycare . I’ve been having a hard time to even trust anyone with my two year old and five year old, but I got a new job and I needed to find someone quick but safe and all the things a responsibile parent screens for when looking for a appropriate daycare. I found one it’s just 20min walking distance. The one thing that bothered me was the daycare lady has her two sons doing most of the work. In my gut I didn’t feel comfortable but I thought maybe it’s just my insecurities with men . I don’t know. They seemed really nice and I didn’t get any bad vibes from them. So tonight my daughter told me that their is another little girl teaching her and my two year old how to shake her butt. And other in appropriate things that got me upset. I texted the lady and told her about it. She asked me to identify what the little girl looks like and what she said. The child care lady said she is familiar with that particular child because of the child’s mother and aunt dances and the child is very sneaky etc. so now I’m just like don’t know what to do. The child care provider said she will nip it in the bud and I have nothing to worry about. But I may have to find another child care provider. Am I over reaching with this? Or should I give it another chance?

Hi!

I have a 2 yr old that started in daycare 3 weeks ago. We started part-time (M,W,F) to give him time to adjust since he has always been with me. Only child. The majority of the time the teachers tell me that he spends his day sitting at the door waiting for me to come back. He doesn't event want to play. Academically he knows basically everything, we put him there to develop social skills. I think he has separation anxiety. It's normal that he spends all day at the door? It breaks my heart!

3 year old won't stop hitting and won't listen

How do you get them to stop hitting and get them to listen. I am taking him to a behavioral therapist but unfortunately there is no opening until end of the month. Hoping they can give me suggestions on how to help him with the hitting issues. any suggestions I can try now will be very helpful.

How's everyone keeping their kiddos social?

Hey mamas! Hope everyone's hanging in there. I'm worried because I've been home watching my kiddo meaning she's not going to daycare and socializing how she normally would! Do you set up Zoom playdates or what? I'm so lost!
