My babysitter......

I never thought that the babysitter i hired would spank my boys. What would you do if you found that out about your babysitter?

  • I hopefully would have told her that we use time outs and take away privileges. Is my kids got spanked the sitter would be gone.

    You as a parent are to tell the babysitter what form of discipline you approve off.

  • Did she know you didn't spank? If so, fire her for disrespecting your wishes. If she didn't know, I'd have explained to her your expectations and punishment methods and let it go as a first-time offense.
