I am sure its not completely uncommon for in home providers to probably understand or favor their own child but It bothers me.. my son, 3, has come home a couple times saying "Tommy isn't nice to be" "tommy calls me a whiner" so of course I bring this to her attention and of course she says she doesn't let any child be hurtful towards another and they all get treated the same and he surely would get talked to and in trouble if he was not being nice to another child.. but ex: last night I went to pick up my son and he comes running to me and Tommy stands in front of him like a gate, ok fine, just normal kids being kids but it seems to always be things like this towards Max, then this morning my son was already in an overwhelmed emotional meltdown mode and tommy stands right in front of the tv where no one else could see this - while my provider is right there and didn't say anything, so I aksed him to move so everyone else could see and he didn't and at the same time my son started bawling ( he is also very emotional child and over sensitive so I have a hard time figuring out what is what here ) so I had to leave after I got him calmed down.. I can't tell what is normal kid behavior but I have to think if Max were standing in front of the tv or calling kids names, I know he'd be in trouble for it because I don't like that either.. but how do you say something to the provider AGAIN when it could be kids being kids or my son being TOO sensitive or would you admit, yeah, I let tommy get away with more maybe because he's mine.. all around my son LOVES his daycare but I guess it bothers me... woudl it bother anyone else or am I totally being over bearing FOR my son lol!~ I tend to baby him because he is so extremely sensitive too ( diagnosed through ECI with severe anxiety and social issues )

If anything I think I would be more favorable to someone elses child. They are the guest in our home, etc. My children would definitely be in trouble for that kind of behavior. I don't call any of them "whiners" when they are having a meltdown and I wouldn't tolerate them calling another child that. My son has the horrible habit of standing in front of the television but it is not something he does on purpose. If I didn't notice, and somebody else did, I would tell him to sit down. That's just rude. And okay, so you already know that your son is sensitive but that doesn't make his feelings any less valid. This kid is bothering him and the examples you have given are more than a valid reason to be upset. I would talk to her again or find another sitter.
