  • nope, i wouldn't. find out what the friend is in to..ya know like drugs, drinking, sex, boy crazy. and then talk to the friend's parents that way you will know something bout the friend and you wouldn't be going crazy wondering if they are taking care of your 2 year like they're suppose to

  • I would want to meet the friend first. I wouldn't have a problem with it though

  • I wouldn't let her. Her focus should be on your 2 year old!!

  • I wouldn't let her bring a friend over. She needs to be watching your child, and if she has a friend there she will be to distracted to do her job correctly.

    I have let our babysitter bring a friend when she is babysitting my three year old, but I know both girls and they are very responsible.

  • Nope, Nope and Nope. The minute a friend is there the kids become secondary. Unless you have 4 kids and use 2 sitters I wouldn't.

  • No she is supposed to be focused on watching your child not chatting with her friend, she sounds very irresponsible i would be concerned
