Bad manners I think not to hear back, even a thanks we filled our post. Good manners cost nothing.

yes, that sort of things is totally annoying or indeed someone else had put up here about an interview parent not turning up, that is not right considering a childminder works from home and has especially put time aside for the parent.
But complaining about not getting a call back and linking it to respect is not right...parents are busy people too.

I cant honestly see why any childminder would get bothered if a parent doesnt ring back after a meeting. Do all candidates for any job whether its the local chippy or a MNC, get a call to say sorry you didnt get the job....How many times have I priced a job with a joinery company, a hotel, etc and I just stay in contact with the one im going with.
Childminding is a business and I feel one needs to toughen up, you cant win them all...

Hi,just regarding Childminders and parents.I do not understand why Parents message or text,re rates,etc and as a childminder we respond and then nothing,it´s so rude.When parents come to my home for a interview and then don´t even text,a simple message would do to say they have filled the position,thanks.

it dosent bother me anymore.but i have heard of some childminders getting a minding job they are meant to start on such a day.the parents are waiting for minder to turn up to mind and the minder never turned up.now that is wrong that is a horrible thing to do.that is way worse if i was the parent waiting for my minder i would be very peed off.

I think people are so rude. It is amazing how parents have time to spend an hour in a childminders house when it suits them but cannot even spare the time to send a text message. The way childminders are treated is disgraceful in my opinion and you can tell from this thread the little respect parents have for them which is laughable because these are the people that parents entrust with the well being of their children.
