A girl, my son's age, accidentally wee-wee while getting her things in the waiting area today. How did I know? Because I saw the yaya's (and the driver's) crowding around her, asking simultaneously, "Why are you wet, did you pee?" "Where's your yaya, you don't have one?" "Go to the bathroom and change". As much as I want to help the child, I don't want to embarrass her more by joining the yaya's around her. I just called the tutor to help her out.
I can't help but overhear the yaya's beside me talking to each other.
Yaya1: "Kenkoy (not real name) pee accidentally while sleeping when he was still in preschool. You know what I did so he'll get scared and not do it again?"
Yaya2: "What did you do?"
Yaya1: "I got mad at him. I removed the bedsheet and wiped it on his face. It worked, he never pee again on the bed"
I was so shocked and angry at the same time. I am very sure the parents know what the yaya did. That yaya has been with them from the time the child was born until now that he is in 3rd grade.
This is the reason why I decided to be a SAHM and not get a yaya. If only I can find somebody like Nanny Fine.
Can you share experiences you've had with your child's caregiver?
