Too much tension caused by no one knowing what is going to happen next. We can't stop the children when they are acting out and we have to take precautiouns not to get hurt. It can be very frustrating. I love being with the children but find it hard not to be able to step in between to stop a fight.
But during the day when a child runs up to you and gives you a hug or a big smile, that is when the light goes on and the day is worth it. The smile, the hug, the I love you those are the bright points of the day.
