the end of summer

Well  I am so relieved that my summer assignment is almost over.In July and August I take care of the childcare's children that are off school for the summer. They are all between 6 - 11 years old and havea variety of interests, personalities and needs. On top of that there allmany rules and regulations which we have to follow which are governmentset. Every year I find it stressful to take care of them under these circumstances.Being a sensitive person it also hard to take in stride their blantant  comments oneverything from the program, each other and especially on me as a person and as a teacher. I struggle with remaining mature and centre. Well, now they are all going to go on to higher grades and back to school so Iwill be working with them partime. There are other concerns such as low en-rolement in our toddler room which will effect me since I was going to get morework covering in there but at least now we will have more time to focus on bringingin business in that room. Also my three children are back to school as well so it willbe quieter at home as well Love and Light to one and all , Ida.

You are such a caring and patient woman taking on these responsibilities. I hope you will be getting the work you need and I am too looking forward to peace and quiet here at home since my kids are back at school...but I worry about them when they are gone and get a bit lonely and bored here. Huge hugs to you friend!

Hi Ida! You sound like a very caring teacher. Hope the fall is a good one for you at work. I had a tough summer but got through it and feel like I am a stronger person for going through it. Thanks for being a friend and for caring. God bless:0)

Who is asserting comments on your person? HOw can any person at a day care know your person? all they know is a vehicle who has to uphold rules. Seeing you is not possible since the people making the comments and opinions isn\'t able to see the whole picture. They just see what bothers them mostly of whihc has nothing to do with you as a person.

I know in my job I have to do very certain things in a certain way since I must provide safety. That isn\'t personal nor my creation. I just abide by what is expected , it is part of the job and NOT my being or person.

so dealing with the reaction of others to \"rules\" , you being the one paid to enforce the rules . Really it is a lousy spot since you havde to deal with others resistance and negativity. but I don\'t see where it has anything to do with your person. It really is a predictable situation given 11 yer olds do not like any one enforcing rules.

One time or maybe more ...People will say,..oh you like being the learder and my answer is..it is a service and I ask for pay for this service. I am not really enjoying training people. it is hard work and do not be calling me names ... I didn\'t make you come here for this training.

People kid and adults commonly blame others for thier own uncomfortable feelings.

Hope this helps with remaining an adult and lessens suffering. PEACE
