Negotiating Differences

If we do find that there are routines, practices, or values that differ from family routines, practices, or values, we will work with the family to find a common ground and attempt a resolution. It is our intention to be respectful of all of our families' practices, values, and cultures. For this reason we do not celebrate holidays, but do learn about those that our families celebrate. Different views of toilet training and eating or drinking habits could also be areas that might need to be discussed. We will always be guided by what is developmentally appropriate and what is a part of our ethical standards when attempting to resolve these differences.
