1. Your child has dirty and/or super long fingernails. I've encountered incident reports that probably would have been less serious had the child not had long claws to scratch another child.
2. Your child wears old/stained/torn clothes(that they arrived in). If you can afford daycare, you can afford decent clothes for your child. Wal-mart isn't expensive! *I don't see where a child would get so dirty while at daycare. Our playground is shredded rubber mulch over concrete and all children wear long-sleeved smocks during any art project requiring paint or messy materials.
3. Your child's hair is a ratty mess. If you won't brush or comb it, keep it short at least!
4. Your child swears. Self explanatory.
5. You have 5+ children in daycare at once. Not aftercare, but daycare.
6. You send your child to school with Pop-Tarts for breakfast every day.
7. You repeatedly ignore our peanut-free policy.
8. You named your child something totally ridiculous and he/she is crying because he/she is the only one having trouble learning to write his/her name. Poor little Auhleoneeza and Jahericorm.
9. You are always late on your tuition and argue about the late fee every single time.
10. Your child is violent and hard to control.
You might find this list harsh, but remember that we are the ones who must somehow mold a variety of parenting styles into one harmonious bunch. Many of my teachers get paid $11-$15 an hour for the privilege of wiping your snowflake's nose and listening to him scream "cockballs!" 10 times an hour.
