my babysitters sisters son is autistic and was just diagnosed in the past couple weeks. She watches my kid at my house a few days per week. well, she basically started taking advantage of our house by having too many ppl here everyday. she would have her sister, her sisters kid (the autistic one), sisters boyfriend and her mom all at my house all day!!!!! I had to put an immediate stop to it. it was just too much! I'm sure you agree??? Anyway, for the longest time she just wanted to bring the kid but there were some problems with him and my daughter and i had to address it by telling her he couldn't come anymore either. i mean, my dd was uncomfortable around him for a bunch of reasons. at that point we didnt' know he was autistic. So.... now that we know, she asked for permission to bring him "on scheduled days" blaming his conditionby saying he doesn't understand why he can't come and he "needs something to look forward to". Im sorry that he has this condition but why should that change anything about our arrangement? why should we have to "give him something to look forward to"? This is her job and its not her kid and the kids mom doesn't even work so its an a childcare issue! I feel like im in a lose/lose situation, if i say he can't come then im going to be labeled insensitive but if i allow him to come back my dd is going to have to deal with all of the issues they were having. What would you do? I'd hate to find a new sitter cause we've had her for years.
