  • Is your SIL a mom? If not, she probably doesnt understand that stage.

  • maybe she is really bad and as her mother you dont want to face it. if i babysat a child that was too much to handle i would say something too.

  • She needs to learn how kids are at that age and what they are going through, that you have to really work with them and it isn't easy.

  • wow - if she's saying that to you, I wonder what she's like to your daughter.. that sucks!! I would pay good money to find someone else to CARE for my child! not point out BAD things all day. 15 months, NO kids are bad, they are learning.!

  • Bummer. Maybe you little one is behaving bad and maybe not. I understand that you don't want her bad behavior to be the first thing out of your babysitters mouth when you get home from work. Your lil girl probably needs a better structured babysitting environment since she is learning so much and needs tons of attention.

  • It must be hard for you to leave your beautiful daughters behind as you go to work. Naturally when you come to pick them up, you want to feel reassured your girls have been happy, and your sil was in control. It sounds to me that she is not doing a very good job, and perhaps you could investigate other means of help from people who are more experienced with young children. Toddlers are full on, its just natural. They need firm boundaries and lots of praise, along with patience. Your girls deserve better. Find someone else to take care of them.

  • probably you could find a more supportive caregiver for the same amt of $$ if you really are paying good money for it. sorry :(
