I've watched these two kids-2 and 3- for three days now. They've cried non stop. I figured, at first it was because I was new and they didn't know me, of course. Well, they still cry. For no reason. I don't let my own kid do that and I wouldn't let anyone else's do it in my house. Would it be so wrong of me to tell the mom I can't watch them anymore? I know she has another sitter for the weekdays I'm in school. I think she only wanted me because I'm cheaper (I'm only getting paid twenty a day!). I feel bad because I had a sitter cancel on me after one day this year.Answer Question

NO! It is not wrong of you to tell the Mom "sorry, this just isn't working out". If it would make you feel better, tell the Mom that your "doing the best you can to make them happy, but nothing seems to work." If she still wants you to keep them, give it a short trial period extension (one more week ONLY if you can handle it) After that, if they are still too much to deal with, drop em like a hot potato!!
I've been baby sitting for years and will no longer trade my sanity for $20 a day. I will only keep kids that mesh well w/ my family.

My son is more important to me than these kids.
I totally agree with you.... your son comes first. Please don't feel bad about not keeping them anymore. It is in everyone's best interest (including the kids, because maybe the Mom can find a situation that better suits thier personality. Or perhaps she won't, but that isn't YOUR problem to deal with! And do NOT think that makes you a B&tch!!
