    Hi Guys:

    I just wanted to offer a little piece of information that was passed on to me by a friend who works in an insurance company.

    I have a therapist/interventionist whom I just took down to a workshop in Vancouver. In doing so – I end up paying for the girls rooms, their food, travel, etc and the cost of the workshop.

    When we arrived home on her following shift – the girl informed that she will be quitting and moving away. She told me she had planned on doing this for about 2 months prior.

    I and my child were basically used so that she could add another workshop to her resume. My child will not benefit in anyway from the training that I just provided her. Yet I have no recourse to get that money back.

    My friend who works at the insurance company says that before they are taken to any training that is expensive – they have to sign a contract saying that they won't leave for 12 months or they will have to pay for the costs of the workshop themselves.

    It is something I will do in the future as I had NO idea this girl was leaving – none. The girl has been with us for almost 3 years.

    Just thought I would pass along the info for anyone else so no other family/child has to lose money like this.
