Bad day at work.

Postby JennaXXX » Thu Jul 09, 2009 9:03 pm

Sorry guys, need cheering up.
I work with 0-3's and for the most part, I love it. But then there are days like today when they all seem to hate me and I come away thinking *what did I or they get out of this?* I know that's silly and that the children do love me. I mean, they cuddle me, ask their parents if they can come in and see me, and some of them even say that they love me. But on days like today, I wonder if they would be better off with someone else.

:(

No, you're very well suited to looking after children of that age group and I know how much you enjoy it.
Children are young and are learning which means that just like us adults they will have good and bad days. Although children still have to learn how to manage their emotions and so if they are having a bad day everyone knows about it. Dont blame yourself. They were probably all having abit of a bad day for one reason or another and its not because of you. Look at all the great feedback that you get from the kids. They even say they love you and thats so special. :)

Chin up, JennaXXX. It was just a down day but tomorrow will probably be better. :)

I agree with captain flyn
Kid s don't think about the effect they have on you with their flippant remarks
You are obviously good at what you do and this is more about your self esteem issue than it is about the kids
I hope you are having a better day
Are things generally better for you at the moment?

Agree with the other two posts. Kids are definitely fickle lol - although the cuteness makes up for it a bit. I once had my hair curled for a wedding and my niece who was five took one look and said 'urgh you look stupid' - I almost cried.

Point being, I wouldn't take how children behave to heart. They're just not aware of their behaviour. I'm sure you're great at your job and were just having a down day, it's allowed.

Chin up.

In addition to the last post I made here, when the kids (and you) have a down day, remember the most important thing, which is..

they cuddle me, ask their parents if they can come in and see me, and some of them even say that they love me.


Kids know who they do and dont like, and it sounds like they're really into you and thats quite wonderful.
