As a new parent with child in day care, I was unaware that you are suppose to show thanks in the form of a gift to your child’s care givers. That’s what most of the parents do around here anyway. I’m not sure if that is standard policy around the nation or what.
But I should have known better. My husband is a school teacher – but he didn’t think of it either until someone mentioned it to him. My husband picked up gift cards to Whole Foods this evening and I wrote out some thank you cards.
