no they wanted her to kept in.the older sister.even told her that the little sister is grounded.the father told the oldest to tell the minder.shes not allowed out. this has happened a couple of times.the child was allowed out as soon as one of the parents arrived home.if she is grounded.then it should be right through.not just when the minder has her.from what my freind tells seems to be.let the minder deal with it.

hi really appreciate.some advice on this.
a freind of mine looks after 2 girls in their own home.a couple of times one of them has been grounded.over very minor things .shes not allowed out.and no one comes in.i might be wrong.but i dont think that a childminder should have to deal with that.if a parent grounds a should be on there watch.not on the minders.from what i soon as the parents got home.the child was let out to play.i think anything like that should be left to the weekend.when the parents are at home.but in this case. its let the minder deal with it.
ps.the parents dident even have the decency. to tell her the child was grounded.the child had to tell her.

If the parents didn´t tell the minder that the child was grounded maybe the parents didn´t expect or want the minder to enforce the rule when minding the child. Best for the minder to check this with the parents rather than enforcing it just because the child told her about it.
