wow. your color-ins (or however you're saying that) are so bad you made an 8 year old want to kill herself. ...or maybe she plans on killing you. watch your back babysitter
Oh hell no! I wouldn't babysit that kid anymore and I would tell her parents that they have a disrespectful child on their hands too.
I wish someone I hired to watch my kid told me this as a complaint just so I could make the words come true. If you're this sensitive and self-absorbed, you shouldn't be working with children. What if OP was just a substitute so to speak? What if the little girl knows her parents don't plan on going out again? What if she knows her grams is moving in to help watch her? And what if OP really was on probation? I would certainly tell my kid to tell me if they dodn't get on with their minder. So many reasons why this was not necessarily disrespectful.
Exactly! Kids haven't got a clue how to talk in a PC kind of way so they just say things bluntly. 8 year olds don't don't usually know how to make those kind of passive aggressive threats either - there's probably a legitimate reason for her to have said that like maybe the family is travelling over Christmas or they are moving or things like that.
When did you loose all the power in this relationship? Comeon get it back... get it back *in elmo voice*
