I started a job about 2 months ago and it is really stressing me out. I teach 3 and 4 year olds at a government funded daycare. We have a lot of cps cases and MAJOR behavior issues. These are the most ill behaved children I have ever met in my entire life. I have 2 child of my own ages 4 and 1.5 years. I will not even allow my children to go to this daycare because it is SOOOOOO bad! I pay a family member to watch them for me.
I am 4 months pregnant. I am hit, pintched, kicked and spit on all day long. I repeat myself like a thousand times a day! There are a couple of kids in my class who are brothers and they wrestle with each other so much that they injure other students. They will NOT listen to ANYBODY AT ALL.
I frequently have to pick up children that are 35 lbs or more in weight to get them off of each other or to get them to time out when they are completely out of control when my doctor gave me a weight lifting restriction of 25 lbs maximum.
I am so stressed out everyday that I frequently cry throughout the day and every single day when I leave work. I am so tired and in so much physical pain by the time I get home everyday that I can barely move, let alone play with and care for my 2 children the way I want to.
I do not get to go to the bathroom but 1 time in almost 7 hours IF that and I have had 4 UTIs since starting there which my doctor says is not safe because it can cause preterm labor.
I am seriously stressed beyond words. I want to quit so badly. I am seriously bawling just writing this because I know I have to go back there tomorrow!
The thing is the money does help but I do not know if the money is worth the stress I am putting on myself and therefore my unborn baby!
I know this is ultimately mine and DHs decision but WHAT WOULD YOU DO?
