I was babysitting these children for maybe 4 months. I have 2 kids of my own (2 & 3). From the first day I started keeping these kids they would hit, bite, push each other as well as my kids. The older child was the worst behaved kid I've ever come across...talked back, stole, tantrums, you name it. I made their mom aware of their behavior and she blew it off. I disciplined them by putting them in time out, as their mom wanted. I do spank my own kids (a light swat on the hand or butt) but never had to do so in the presence of the kids I babysit.
Anyway, their mom called me and said she was no longer bringing her kids. She said the older child had told her that I repeatedly threatened to spank the younger child ( a lie) and she said that her kids had started to hit each other at home, which she attributed to my spanking my kids.
This whole thing has me irritated. I am glad she no longer brings her kids because it was (CONT)
