Child care providers are entrusted with caring for our most precious resource - our children. As a child care provider, time spent with the children in your care allows you to get to know them, and also their parents. Child care providers must work closely with parents and keep lines of communication open. Communication often involves holding conferences with parents to address concerns held by either the parent or the care provider. This lesson discusses guidelines for communicating with families in a child care environment, including communicating with parents about sensitive issues such as developmental needs and suspected child abuse. Addressing these topics is difficult, but following the guidelines provided for communicating sensitive issues can help make the discussion less stressful for everyone involved.
