If you ever feel concerned about your babysitter you should listen to your intuition and never have them watch the kids again. I’ve learned that your intuition is usually correct.
telling our children no will assist them in life to come, and they will be able to tell themselves no when necessary (unless it’s brownies for breakfast).
The kids don’t care that the babysitter is late, or that they don’t show up when they’re scheduled but, you do! It is you that looks bad…
One thing you MUST remember is just because you pay more than the going rate doesn’t ALWAYS equate getting a better babysitter. Your kids are important but you shouldn’t over value or under value the job of babysitter.
There is a balance between expecting too much, and not expecting enough from your babysitters. Mistakes will be made…I actually used foot fungal cream on a rash instead of cortisone cream
