  • I think honesty is better..especially if you have a big time gap that you would be unable to explain. I would just tell them you had child care problems but you have that worked out now and then move on to tell them positive traits about your work ethic in the interview. Don't dwell on it and try to overjustify it. Just be sure they know you have corrected the problem.

    I agree! Honesty is usually the best way to go and I am sure they will understand if you explain you had childcare issues, but have since resolved them.

  • Best to be honest, they will appreciate that more than finding out you lied.
