Family Child Care Educator, Early education specialist, Teacher and Professional. Those are all the names that we SHOULD be called. It is not the names that we hear. We are called babysitters, providers and treated as unskilled labor. We are so much more than people want to believe. In order for them to see that we have to change the language ourselves and make the moves needed to create long lasting, well run businesses.
I remember feeling down when I relocated from Maryland to the state of California and trying to get a job in a preschool or center. I was made to feel like my experience as a family child care provider wasn't good enough. That I simply stayed home and was a babysitter. I write lessons plans, build budgets, create community connections and so much more within my business. But the thought that we as professionals are some how less has been a long standing feeling within our society.
It is time to change that.
Say it out loud: I am a professional. Now say: I am a business owner.
Repeat them both every day and make sure you say it to those around you. You are an educated, hardworking individual and you just happen to run your business from your home. If IT professionals can be considered professional and work from home, then we deserve the same respect.
