I know they are really busy. My issue they take on more then they can handle and use that as an excuse for inconsistency. My daughter has been in a medical treatment for awhile suppose to be getting help. Their lack of communication and effectiveness is a problem. When u become too busy to attend to a child's needs you are no better then a parent u say do the same. They could do better.
