A very good friend of mine has a couple young kids and runs her own home daycare. My 3-year old son has gone there since he turned one and I’ve now started sending my second son who just turned a one. My friend’s two kids are similar in age to mine and this gives them all a nice opportunity to develop friendships at a young age. A few months ago I started to notice that when I’d pick up my son, my friend (the babysitter) would always have something bad to tell me about his behaviour. She would explain something that happened with the kids and it always seemed to be my kid’s fault and the blame would never be on her kid(s). A couple weeks ago, just after my youngest started at the daycare, my friend told me I’d have to find another place for my eldest son to go because she ‘couldn’t handle him anymore’. I think this was really rude and that she’s unfairly biased toward her own kids. Now I don’t even know if I should leave my younger son with her or if we should even be friends anymore. – Upset Mom in Kitchener
