    Default Diploma in Children's Services assignment help.

    Hello all , i just found this site and it looks great, so i am hoping that someone is able to help me with one of my assignments.
    The assignment is to write out an interview with a parent whose child is taking other children's toys and placing them in her bag and she is denying that she put them there and saying that they are her toys. The childs father is away often and spoils her when he gets home by giving her anything she wants.

    How can this be resolved with the parent could it be maybe needing to look at bringing in a no toys from home policy?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated
    Thanks in advance

    hey i havent done my diploma yet but work in child care. Alot of children bring in toys for comfort or a reminder of home.

    Id say more along the lines of making sure all toys/comfortors go in the childrens bags when going inside for the day and only brought out again at rest time if this is appropriate. Having ALL items brought into day care named clearly so they can be identified to the correct child.

    Even some activities of children bringing in toys but letting the other children look at it and have a go and then giving them back. So they get a sense of having a look at others special toys and maybe having a go but also giving them back and explaining why etc. If that makes sense. Will be in your shoes when i eventually get my butt into gear and fill out the form for doing my diploma lol

    I would suggest asking the parent to provide a photo of the child with her chosen comforter so that the career could use it as a physical reminder for the child. Personally I don't think banning comforters is something that goes down well, especially if the child is going through some emotional changes.

    We send our 21 month old to crèche with her "bear". He is a manky stuffed bear that she can't sleep without and without bear is traumatised at drop off time. The rules are she carries bear into her crèche room, her and bear say Hello to everyone and some of the other kids give bear a cuddle- then bear goes in her locker til nap time or if she becomes distressed. After nap time bear is straight back in her locker til home time. The children are allowed to bring comfort toys or a toy to share on special occasions eg last week a little boy had his new wiggles cd and they all danced to it during music time. I know the staff don't encourage bear to be out at any time other than nap time or if she is sad (of course there are many other strategies used if she is sad other than her bear). As there are only 12 kids in her room the few children who bring a bear/comfort toy are known to staff and they are returned to the right child.

    Thank you for all your help and suggestions they are great ideas. It would be very cruel to take away the children's comforters. You have made me understand the assignment better.
    I have only just started the diploma and i am enjoying it but am finding it a little harder as i am doing it from home now and when i did my certificate 3 i was at TAFE where there was a lot more support.
    It is great to know there are people out there that are willing to help and share their ideas.
    Thanks again
