My youngest DD has to go for testings at the hospital on Thursday for one we can't take our older DD in the room where they are testing and if we take her it is 2 hours we have to wait in the waiting room with her. It is important for hubby and I both to be in there with our 15 month old because they are testing on her heart so I got a sitter for that also because 2 hours I am not sitting in the waiting room she is 4 years old and out in public she is really bad like embarrassingly bad so our friend is going to watch her, but my ? is if she gets to where she doesn't listen to her and she is acting up for her what are some disipline things I can tell my girlfriend she can do to her?

It depends on both what you're comfortable with, and then what your sitter is comfortable with. Parents should always voice their discipline beliefs before letting another watch their child and what they're comfortable with is what is the determining factor. They should also listen to the person watching their child's own beliefs as it may go against the grain of what they would want for their child. What I'm saying is you choose and tell your sitter, make it consistent with what you do at home however maybe choose a lighter approach as this will be a 'new' situation for your child and the sitter is not a permanent substitute or somebody your child is used to.
