Caring for children while their parents are away can be a hard transition for some children. My approach to childcare is definitely a patient and caring one. I strongly believe that forming a bond with both parents and children is the most important approach to any childcare situation. I believe that the manners in which the children are disciplined are the parent’s choice, different things work for different families. I think that it is very important that the childcare provider not only be consistent with the parent’s manner of discipline but their limit setting as well. Understanding and sticking with the parenting style is crucial to an easy and seamless transition for the children.
