For almost a year now we have been watching a friend's child 3 evenings a week for fee. We feed and bathe her before her mom picks her up after dad drops her off. In the last 2 weeks this toddler and mine have been into some trouble around my house. The second child is doing things that my DD knows that she isn't to do, but is encouraged to do it b/c her friend is doing them. I don't want my child picking up anymore of these bad habits b/c she has been disciplined from the beginning and her friend has not and does not have any boundaries. How do you tell someone that you don't want to watch their kid b/c you feel that their 2 yo is a bad influence on your 2 yo? BTW when she was picked up the other night after most of this had occurred, her Mother's response was "Well their 2, and their terrible". That answer was not sufficient for me.Answer Question

Just tell her you can't handle it anymore. I would be a little pissed if I were you. You have been watching this child for free for a year and she doesn't seem to be to concerned about the way her child is acting. If I had been lucky enough to find a friend to watch my child for free, you can guarantee that I would do ANYTHING to ensure that my child was behaving! Drop her, quick.
