    Default When would you pull your child out of a daycare?

    Ive been having some issues with my sitter. My son has been going to this sitter for a few months now and already i've had gut insticts to remove him from her care. most of my issues are related to my feelings of him NOT getting enough supervision (unexplainable scratches or bruises) I know kids will be kids but when i come for pick up and the sitter is in the house while the children are outside playing i get upset! (please note that my son is 12 months). What would you do?
    Looking for some advice thanks.

    A 12 month old should not be left unattended; I'd be concerned and would consider pulling him out if she didn't have a damn, good explanation.

    12 months is way too young to be left alone for even a second... in my opinion... unless there is an older (like 6-8ish +) child that is watching for a sec or two while the provider runs in to grab “insert whatever here.“

    I say follow your gut though.

    Go with your gut! At 12 months old, if the person in charge left my child outside unsupervised, my child would definitely no longer be left under their care. It takes a split second for an accident to happen.

    Mommy Raidars are a very strong vibe you can't take lightly.
    HDCP and Parents need to be on the same page when it comes to little ones. If you don't feel your provider and you are then I would seek elsewhere.

    If you don't feel comfortable leaving your son there I would pull him and find someone else that better suits what you are looking for.

    The second I saw my one year old outdoors alone, for any length of time, I'd be saying goodbye.

    I don't see ANY need for that. There's no reason why she couldn't just bring him in if she needed to pee, or whatever excuse she had for leaving him out there. I did it with my kids, and any others who were over.

    If you aren't totally satisfied, shop around - he's your child. He needs you to listen to that little voice saying 'something isn't right here' and protect him.

    Definitely pull your child out! I've heard of parents running into trouble and being legally accused on neglect for leaving a child that young unattended. If your sitter is licensed or registered with a company, it's time for a report and surprise inspection.

    I would trust your instinct and pull him. Sorry it's not working out. 12months is wayyyyy to young to be left alone! Especially outside!

    I agree with everyone else, trust your gut. Also if you wouldn't let you little one outside alone than in my opinion your sitter shouldn't either.

    From an HDCP standpoint a 12 month old should never, ever be left alone outside unsupervised. Mind you I would leave any children outside unsupervised until they are of an age to understand the rules (8 or so at least). Sunfire follow your gut instinct and start looking for a new caregiver and pull your babe out immediately!!
