Recently a family pulled her 2 children out of my providers care and filed a complaint against her license also.. My provider stated it was because the mother was upset she didn't take the kids out daily... which is state law however its Minnesota and for the last 3 weeks has been mountains of snow and below freezing weather.. also the mother and provider had been dealing together with some behavioral issues the 4 year old daughter has been having and it wasn't going well... This is not wrong of me is it?? I trust my provider however, I feel it would be irresponsible not to at least check in to the complaint... what do you think??

+If your kids go to the same provider, then I think it is your duty to check up on it. It is for the safety of the children.

Check it out. I think you'll feel better when you do. Your provider's explanation makes sense, but it seems strange that someone would file a complaint over not taking the kids out in the freezing weather and snow. It sounds like the parent was probably pretty angry about the other issues, which might not be reportable. If the complaint only mentions the lack of outdoor time, then it's a pretty good guess that the parent was just angry, but whatever she was angry about wasn't something that violated any laws or regulations. I think it would be ok to ask your provider for more details too.
