I am babysitting for a friend who has no discepline system in place for her almost 3 year old son. He hits, kicks and screams. He never does something the first, second or third time he is told. He does dangerous things (like running outside and towards the road when told not to ect). He throws his toys and is too rough with his infant brother. He gets spanked when she's had enough of just talking at him to stop doing stuff and sometimes she'll lock him in his room for time-out (she doesn't know how to make him sit in time out on his own when he doesn't want to).
I have extensive babysitting experience as well as rules and a time-out/reward system that has been effective for the 28 kids from 7 different families I've babysat for in the past. I am only watching her kids 2 days a week and am afraid my discepline vs. her lackthereof will be confusing.
Should I let him do whatever he wants like he is used to?
