Unlike helicopter parents, absent parents are probably more problematic for the child. This is not always the parents fault, however, as people have demanding jobs at times. Prioritize the child and their feelings first, as it may strain their relationship with their parents if they cannot rely on them to be there for them at pick-up. Consider your own situation, as these parents can also delay when you can clean up and finish for the day. Especially if your center doesn’t charge extra for the time. If you suspect abuse, be sure to contact authorities.
