My child went to preschool and met a friend. I am very new to town. I found out this 'friend' lives a street over from me. When I say this child (not mine, his friend) has behavioral problems, that's an understatement. The kid will be 4 in July and he still cannot form complete sentences, verbally communicate well, hits his mother, bites his mother and he hits my child. The child spits, pees in his baby pool, on rare occasions they play nicely, but the mom is a single mom. She works full time and her child is babysat by her varoius relatives.
She literally lives a street down the block from me and I'm stay at home so she calls me various hours of the day for the kids to play. She drives by to if I'm home. My son asks for her child constantly to play but my son started hitting me the other day which is NOT my son. I do not hit and he has never hit me before, but he saw her son hit his mother and spit at her so my son is repeating this behaviors.
Yesterday, she called me at 8am to come over and play. I said my child has a playdate at 11 which he did with his other friend. Her kid got kicked out of preschool (not kidding) the child would throw his sneakers at the teachers when he got mad and this mom wants me to help babysit her child in the fall.
I am at my last rope. Advise. Please.
