  • No because, if so already judges my kid it would drive me nuts, and having her undermind me becasuse of what she thinks is right would irritate me

  • She doesn't sound like a religious person...

    My oppionin is that if you are concerned and don't feel comfortable then don't let her care for your child. Especially not if she is going to tell your child that she is going the Hell! I am very wary of people that think they know who is going where in the after life. I think they are reaching beyond their qualifications!

  • My baby is not even here yet, and I have a friend that is always telling me that she wants to watch the baby when she comes. I always just tell her ok to humor her, but I have no intentions of calling her when I need a babysitter. I don't think you really need to tell her why you don't want her to watch him, just always convienently have another option.
