I was told that as a nanny I was terrifying a 3 year old by telling him that if he doesn't wear sunblock he could get a sunburn, that if he does not wear insect repellent, he could get a mosquito bite and that using fear to gain compliance must stop. I was told that I was in danger of killing her child by giving him full body hugs. The "charges" are ridiculous but the parents sincerely believe them. They had a talk with me and were stunned to learn that I was offended at their critique. They called the critique minor and new techniques minor course corrections but really wanted me to accept blame for terrifying their child. A meeting was called and both parents ganged up on me and tried to get me to accept blame for unjustly scaring their children. How do I recover?
