It was supposed to be mum's first day at daycare today. I arranged for her AS carer to go in at 9am to get her up and dressed and on the minibus and I told dad not to say anything to her until the carer arrived. However, he did and she got very upset and distressed and refused to get out of bed. I suspected this would be the case which is why I arranged for the carer to go in but she couldn't persuade mum either, dad said she was shouting at them and they had to give up. I feel so disappointed for her as I know she will enjoy once she's there, it's just getting her there that's the problem. I'm going to go next week and take her myself but I can't do that every week and I don't want her to think that's going to happen every week. God this is hard, how do you persuade someone that you are doing these things for them, to help them and that they will have a nice time when they get there? I think mum just thinks we're ganging up on her. I know the daycare centre probably get this all the time but I feel like we've let them down as well, places are like gold dust and I don't want to lose mum's place there, she's been on the waiting list since June and she really needs this, so does dad. Any suggestions of how to sell it to her, I'm at my wits end. Thanks.
