(Des Moines Register)   Maybe you're not ready to be director of a daycare if your potty-training techniques include making fun of the children when they have an accident. Or if you blame your crippling alcohol problem on a 3-year-old. "She's the reason I drink"   (desmoinesregister.com) divider line 45

Pair that business up with the Dissing Your Dog daycare and you've got an all services covered for people who love work more than family.

An accident? Who the fark is letting toddlers drive in the first place?
 
2014-03-19 04:33:32 PM  
I overheard one of the teachers at my daughter's former school/daycare center saying something similar to a kid. Since the infants' "teacher" arrives later in the morning, the infants are put into the room with toddlers until the infants' teacher arrives. One of the infants pooped in his diaper and the toddlers' teacher scolded him, saying "Aiden! You're not supposed to do that until Miss So and So gets here!"

This is Fark....there is no such thing as "needing a reason" to drink.

It's much more effective to let the other children make fun of them when they have an accident.

If you're wearing diapers, you aren't having an accident. It's already been prevented.

FTA: Snacks that presented a choking hazards to young children, such as popcorn and raisins, and others that did not have nutritive value, such as pink lemonade, were served.


I thought "pink lemonade" was from grapefruits and that grapefruits have some nutritive value.

The good stuff (when I make it, anyway) is strawberry lemonade. Very tasty, especially the *ahem* after work version. We're probably talking here about the powdered mix, which is nutritionally vacant.

As a once in a while treat, I don't see the problem with the lemonade. Chokey snacks for the little ones, though, are right out.

Grapefruit juice is made from grapefruits. Pink lemonade is the crap you get at school fairs.

I was prepared to be all outraged and then I saw the part of the story where the daycare is going out of business.

But I would say they need to face criminal, not just civil charges.

Pink lemonade, the "real" kind, is made of lemon juice, water, sugar and maraschino cherry juice or grenadine. I strongly suspect what she was serving was something akin to "Country Time" mix.

So according to the article, these morons can continue to provide daycare...just in their home, not as operators of a daycare center.  Oh yeah, that makes sense.

"citrus-fruit"-aide denotes via the discription that it is a sweetend version of a sweet sour/citrus juice.

I cant say that I ever gave much thought to the root of Pink lemonaide, but it makes sense that grapefruit juice is at the bottom of that..

The most depressing part of the story to me is that this woman has worked in childcare for 32 years.

Also is their yelp reviews or something for day care providers? Are the parents totally cool leaving their children with this abusive jerk all day?  You'd think reputation would make or break you in the childcare industry.

Legally daycare is more than five children from more than one family. Babysitters pretty much stick to one family at a time.
The child care profession gets a lot of flack for being easy and pointless. As a matter of fact in my state (CA) there are a number of regulations (health and safety) and standards (in regards to the child's behavior and learning) to meet.
Child care should be recategorized as a teaching profession. With Kindergarten as the new first grade - with sitting at desks, math lessons, etc - day care has become the way children learn to behave In a classroom.
I could go on about how most fast food jobs are held by people providing for themselves or a family - ie not teenagers. But it pretty much sounds like you've never seen a good daycare and just want to throw shade.

FTA: "In 2012 she was cited for a daycare-related municipal infraction and was ordered to ... reduce the number of children under her care."

Obviously she's trying to do that & they're still not happy.

Whiners...

Also, FTA: "workers performed the swipe technique to remove the material from the (choking) boy's mouth"

Since when did yanking crap out of the little maniac's mouth so he stops choking become an official procedure?

Good daycares are better than schools. They're also hard to find and can be expensive.

As with any small business, the quality of a daycare is a direct reflection of the person running the place.

Pink lemonade is made from lemons and gets its pink from either artificial food dye (usually red) or is colored by the addition of cranberry juice or raspberry juice. Most of the cheaper commercial varieties use red food dye.
