well at least they arent playing on their mobile the whole time...
Ok, if the kids had time to do all that then you weren't watching them very well at all!
Actually it could be easy for one to sneak out of the OP's line of sight. I babysit twin boys and they're constantly doing this thing where one will cause a distraction (spilling juice, throwing things, climbing on things, trying to break things) so that the other one can sneak off. You'd be surprised at how crafty little children can be.
I don't know, that's a whole lotta steps that could have been prevented. A good caretaker knows that kids are indeed crafty and needs to be one step ahead of them at all times. Okay, the kid got ahold of a knife but it should have been taken away long before he had time to duct tape it to the gun. Now he has matches-- again taken away before he lit anything. And the kid heading to the roof? Stopped before reaching the top. Etc. . .
I have to say both sides are correct. Children can be evil masterminds, adept in the dark arts, cunning and swift. However, anyone caring for theses demon seeds should anticipate this! There really is no excusing that the babysitter missed this little bastard collecting, assembling, and putting to use the number of contraband items need to rain hell on the household. A fire, a knife or a jumper on the roof maybe, but not all three!
51, but if the child(ren) is/are especially destructive, getting them to sit down and be calm is a whole different issue. The twins I babysit? The more rowdy one gets, the more rowdy the other one gets, and no amount of calming activities will get them to chill out until they're good and ready. Like I said before, children are crafty, and when it comes to one who's especially rowdy, it's difficult to keep them in your line of sight 24/7, especially if they leave a path of destruction in their wake that YOU have to clean up before someone else gets hurt either by tripping, slipping, or stepping on something sharp.
76 I used to babysit twin boys too, and my oldest 2 girls were 19 months apart, so I know how challenging it is! It doesn't have to be calm and sitting down, just structured, play chase, or football etc. I'd leave hide and seek in op's case though, just asking for more trouble.
