Communicating with Parents about Parenting Quality
Authors: Saraswathy Ramamoorthy with Judith A. Myers-Walls, Ph.D., CFLE

As a childcare provider, you develop close relationships with children and their parents as well. Your primary responsibility is towards the children. Their well-being and safety are your main concerns. You may face situations when you suspect that a child is being abused. This is a very serious issue. Talking to parents about abuse is not easy at all. Before talking to parents about abuse you should be able to recognize it when it happens.
