We all see lorries carrying our precious cargo with the sign “How’s my driving call 123 with any concerns etc”
Well that got me thinking why can’t it be used for other things like people who are child minders or even carers in the community looking after vunerable adults or the elderly, or disabled or the mentslly ill.
Only the other day I saw a child minder with 3 small children, one child was in a buggy and can’t have been older than 6 months and was sobbing her heart out, the child minder ignored the child’s cries, the other two didn’t even have their hoods up in the rain, I couldn’t keep my anger in and spoke with the childminder and said I didn’t think she was doing a very good job, she listened for a minute or so and then made her excuses and hurried off, I have no idea where she lives or the parents of the children, it would be handy if there was a way to raise minor concerns.
Wouldn’t it be a wonderful if by law that child minders would have to wear high visibility jackets with a contact number or a name of Facebook page to add positive comments for wonderful caring and creative child minders or to raise concerns of the child care providers who ignore children, possibly abuse them or are purely only in it for the money.
Does anyone else think this would be a wonderful idea, we hand over our children to these people we trust but have no way of 100% knowing how they treat our children especially babies and small toddlers who are yet to be able to voice any concerns.
