I need help withchildcare this summer and thought I could get my lil sister to watch my kid *free* but I know last time she was out here she did cause me a few problems. Always wanting to go somewhere and no money, got into a fight with a roommate (I live on my own now), and not listening when I give a reason for something (she wanted to walk to the library (8min walk) alone I said no because she is use to a small town not a big city), plus always bugging me if she can go spend the night over another relatives house-that I know is not a good place to be.
It would be helkplful to hve her hear so I can run around and try to get a job and not have to pay an arm and leg for childcare but the stress of a teenager my kill me (my kid is only 2 and is a boy).
last time I set up cler rules and talked about what I expected but she failed what should I do now?
***after reading some comments I never saw where I was wrong at. I never thought (I'm being honest) that not paying her was a problem. I guess I just expected her to do it cause she is my sister. My mother did it to me..made me wtch all of her kids for free and I got absolutly nothing from it. WOW thanks for the eye opener guys!!!****Answer Question

Expecting her to babysit for free and not have money to do anything or be able to go anywhere sees a little unrealistic to me. Maybe you could talk to her and come up with some type of compromise that works for both of you.
