Not that I can do anything about it but still WWYD??
So I've been working for almost a week now (even though it feels longer lol) Anyways, I'm in the infant/toddler room. Due to 3 kids leaving last week we now have 2 babies (twins who are 3 mths) and then 4 1 year olds.
One of the children is a little black girl. She seems to be developmentally delayed as she doesn't speak/babble and has a complicated home situation. Never knew her bio mother and her father's mother raises her. The aunt is trying to adopt her but Idk the whole story behind that. Anyways, the grandmother drops the little girl off at 10 or 11 every morning and the little girl cries for about 2 hours straight! I mean the slobbering, crying until you throw up type of crying and the only way to console her is to pick her up and carry her around the room.
I was told not to do this though because there are 6 kids and 2 workers and so I was told I couldn't cater to her like that. When she comes in it's usually snack time and she doesn't eat. She just sits there and cries and cries. She usually just cries herself to sleep for nap time.
The crying doesn't bother me per se but it's like if I was the director I would speak to the gma about bringing her so late and they said that they have spoke to her about it and she changes for a while but then it's right back to the lateness.
WWYD in this situation?? I know I can't do anything about it but it's disruptive and disrespectful to the kids and us to have to deal with her crying every single day. The other kids can't sleep and she wakes the babies up because she just cries and cries. She has been coming to the center for months and yet has still not gotten used to getting dropped off.
