well, its raining, and child number 1 turns up with out any type of coat but in shorts and t-shirts!!! :angry: I told parents on friday that we were of out for the day, last week when it was hot and sunny he turned up without suncream and we went out to a park every day (different ones) and despite being made to sit in the shade for about 10mins which upset him whilst i sorted blankets and little ones out and dug out the cream from the bottom of the park he still came everyday without cream:angry: I wouldnt mind but i send t a letter home at thestart of the good weather requesting they apply cream before arrival , not only that this child is old enough to not only apply the cream but to think to put it on before he comes.
well, i am still off out,,i refuse to disapoint 3 other children just because he and his mum can be organized.

I would send the letter home every day until they get the message :laughing:

Have a good day out and hope the rain stops for you

Personally I would have called the parent back to get a coat. I have done this on a couple of occassions and its amazing how it concentrates their brains afterwards. :laughing:

tell parent you can't go whole holiday with no suncream. Insist she leaves a raincoat with you and ask if you can buy a bottle of suncream and add it to your bill.

I have a toddler here with sandals and socks in this horrible wet weather :angry:

our primary school has a habit of putting a sticker on a child for the end of the day (normally PE kit / homework / reading book / etc) - maybe put one on for suncream...

I would also send her home next time for the coat - you could ask her to pick up the suncream at the same time to keep at yours or offer to buy some and bill her for it :laughing:

yup, raining and the 2 older children have shorts t-shirts and sandals:rolleyes: but they do have rain coats;)

Some parents just don't think no matter what you do.

Perhaps this time the child will remember, especially if he's got wet!
