Is it mean when you don't like the kid you are watching?

First of all I'm not being compensated for watching this child. She's a terror. She's spoiled, whiney, refuses to share with my daughter and it's taking up my time to watch her for FREE! I am getting really pissed about this and I told the parent that I need to be compensated for watching her. I havent' seen any compensation yet. So I refuse to watch this child!

  • Still you need to tell your roommate you would like to be compensated for taking care of your child who is more work for you than your own child.

  • No but maybe you should quit watching the kid

  • I don't think it's the child you don't like, but her behavior, try changing the way she acts and you will probably find a very unique little person

  • I had a roommate with a child who never behaved. once i jlaid down the law, he behaved for me and not my roommate. Show the kid who is the boss and life will be a lot easier. And tell the roommate you aren't watching the kid anymore. Good luck!

  • I think you have to change the situation because you cant change people. either get out or kick her out.

  • Find a new place to live. Or if you are the holder of the lease, kick her out.
