    Hey Megan, Another great post! You are so right, sometimes it is time to say goodbye. In my experience I have found that it is best to kind of pay attention at the beginning. Usually if the parent or the child was a problem from the start, they remained a problem throughout. I have found it helpful to keep notes regarding the issue(s) in the child’s file or somewhere. After awhile I get tired of writing the notes and it forces me to realize there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Finally, I have to say that the more I have learned to stick to my policies and procedures, the less I have problem clients. They realize fairly early on that I mean business and therefore take my business more seriously.

      You’re absolutely right, Adrienne! Being consistent with your own policies is the best way to do things and weeds out the not-so-great clients very quickly.
