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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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? :)

Reply

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.
