View Full Version : giving up: guilt/fear/what to say

don't get chance to come on and post very often.

A large number of childminders have left/leaving/cutting down due to stress/changes/etc. Just wondered how do people handle the guilt of that (especially when you're going to see parents at school for example) and what are people putting or saying to parents.

I suppose you'd just say that you have had a change of circumstances.

I hope you are ok xx

I don't think i'd feel guilty. If I made the decision to quit it would be for a very good reason, and I try not too feel regret or guilt about the decisions I make.

I think when time comes whenever that it, I will feel bad initially but as others said it would be for good reason and parents can and have cancelled contract so it's just the way it goes sometimes
I think as long as you are honest with parents, what's there to be guilty about?
