How can I find a strict sitter for my child

My child is a very immature 15 year old. I am a single parent working in medicine. I hired a girl to keep up with his behavior at school and at home, she was very strict with him and it seems as if the regiment really helped him. She had to move away and now I am trying to replace her but all the sitter sonar have not been willing to sit him in that way

  • typically your best bet is to find a sitter closer to your own age, and someone with kids that raises them the same way you want your son raised.

  • Sounds like you need a retired Marine as a sitter!

  • I would place an ad for someone who has worked in this kind of situation before, I also would encourage him to get involved in activities!

  • Unless he's special needs?? Why would a 15 year old need a sitter??

  • Is your child 15 or 13? Your answer says one thing and your profile says another.

  • What you are asking according your previous post is something ANYONE should run from. I don't blame them for not wanting to help because you're asking them to spank a teenager.
