My husband's parents had the paddle for him and his brothers but my parents had the belt. It's a shame so many parents are against spanking these days. It would fix so many problems. Good to know the government won't see in my house so I can raise my kids properly.

Well, it's not your fault. Its the kids fault and subsequently, that means the parents have to take full blame for the situation. It's not like you were just neglecting him and he went upstairs and cut her clothes up out of boredom.

I've heard that if you spank a child with a unused hot glue stick, it doesn't leave marks. :O I was never spanked as a child. But do feel spanking depends on that child. Parents need to find what works best for each and ever child. I apparently didn't need it. Phew! (: Lol

A disgustingly violent bunch we have 'round, eh? Mmm.

I think parents aren't aloud to discipline their children properly these days, if you spank your kid in public you get dirty looks and accused of child abuse. Well i tell you now I got my mums horse whip or my fathers firm hand across the back of my legs and it taught me not to do it again!

I agree with greenbean here, OP shouldn't have left the kid alone. If the kid needed some cooling off time, OP should have at least made sure he was in his own room! OP should loose the income and should never babysit again.

You're the worst babysitter. Babysitters are supposed to be fun!

That doesn't make OP a bad baby sitter. It's not OPs fault the child is a little shit and refuses to eat their vegetables. then the child wants to go up stairs and ruins their mothers clothes? That just says that either the child gets whatever he wants when acting out and isn't used to given direct orders Or really is just a terribly raised child.

When I babysit I don't forbid the kids from playing just because for once their parents aren't home and they don't wanna eat their vegetables. Kids need to be kids.

Yeah, but that doesn't mean OP is bad, look at the kids reaction to being told to eat vegetables, obviously there is something wrong with the kids parenting because normally not a lot of kids react like that for being told to eat some vegetables.

Lol, that doesn't make you a GOOD babysitter, that just means you're a pushover and you take the path of least resistance. That actually makes YOU the bad babysitter in my opinion. Babysitters don't necessarily have to be "fun" - they're there to keep the child safe and supervised, while keeping to the child's schedule and the parent's regulations. Kids are still growing, they need to eat their vegetables as well as know that they won't always get what they want by throwing a fit or a temper tantrum.

I do keep the child safe and supervised, I keep all 3 of them safe and supervised. And I'll have you know I'm a great babysitter :-) they never throw tantrums, they go to bed when they're told and they listen to me. They also enjoy me there which is why I keep getting called back. You don't have to be as strict as their parents to keep them safe. Not eating veggies isn't going to kill the kid for one night.

Just because you are blessed with well behaved children to babysit does not mean that you are a good babysitter, it just means that you babysit good kids.

I'm also blessed with being a great babysitter.

Kids need a maintained structure. Your "I'm such a good babysitter because the kids like me!" excuse isn't going to sway anyone. Hell, I would like someone who came over to my house and fed me chicken nuggets and ice cream and let me watch South Park but that doesn't make them a good babysitter. What are you going to do when your clients try to make their kids eat broccoli, and they get the response "So-and-so doesn't make me eat broccoli! So-and-so gives me fruity pebbles for dinner!" The parents won't think you're such a good babysitter then. You need to maintain the structure their parents have set for them, that's your job. It's great to have fun with them, watch movies with them, play games, even bake cookies or cupcakes with them when they've behaved. But if they misbehave or go outside of their parents' rules, it's not cool for you to just disregard that and let them do what they want. They're not your kids. I know if you were looking after my kids and undermined my guidelines like that I would not be pleased.

When I babysit the kids eat their dinner that was made for them, we watch kids movie, play with their dog, go for walks, play wii or on their trampoline, and then they go to bed. They are all safe and sound, I haven't turned any of them into disobedient delinquents. So once again, I'm a great baby-sitter, for all of the above reasons. Also, I don't much care whether you're swayed or not.

Ummm...rude much? OP is right... Just because the kid didn't eat their vegetables doesnt mean he's going to kill the kid. It was one little incident. And she shouldn't be called a "bad babysitter" just because the kid had a little fit. So how about YOU stfu Kay? :)

I still think she's a bad babysitter. And I wasn't the one who said stfu in the first place so your capitalization was unnecessary. Also, if people are going to argue my comment I'm going to argue back.

And just because YOU got lucky with well-behaved kids and OP didn't doesn't mean she's bad OR you're good. At least she has the balls to take on the challenge. Idiot. You sound like you're 15.

I don't think I ever enforced the "eat your veggies" rule when I was a babysitter... I'm not the parent, so why do I have to be the bad guy? Most parents (that I sat for) didn't really mind. YDI it though, kids that get angry over something as stupid as veggies are more likely to do something that will get YOU in trouble. If you want to be the bad guy, at least don't turn your back!
