In the case of a disagreement, let your provider know how important the issue is to you. Remember that young children are most comfortable with familiar settings and people they already know and trust. If you have a caregiver that you feel is meeting your most important needs, it's usually well worth taking the time and effort to straighten out small disagreements. Your employee resource program's child care consultant can help you think through an approach. If no law or regulation is violated, there often will be no legal action you can take. And if the conflict becomes overwhelming and cannot be resolved, you will have to seek another provider.

Although nobody gets a parenting manual or bible in the delivery room, it is our duty as parents to try to make our kids as well rounded, happy and confident as possible. It is a lot easier to bring up great kids than it is to try and fix problems caused by bad parenting, when our kids have become adults. Our children are all individuals - they are not our property but people in their own right.
