I had to hire the 12 yr old because the 16 yr old is too irresponsible!

When we are gone for long periods of time we have one of the kids friends come over and let the dog out.  I was using my son's friends because I figured a 16 yr old boy could use a couple extra bucks and would be responsible.  But the ding dong forgot.  So I now hire his 12 yr old sister to do the job.

Not surprised, a 12 year old stil might look at that as something of a privilege, 16 year olds still think the world revolves around them lol!

I just hope that my son or dd doesn't babysit your kid. Last thing I'd want a mom calling my kids is idiot. That is disrespectful and rude. No kid is the same we all know but name calling remain private. Not on a public website

ok ... it was an idiot move... better.  he isnt an idiot but the action or inaction was an idiot move.  I even changed the post to sound less rude.

he is a great kid but it was pretty bad to forget to let the dog out for the whole day when he had agreed to do it.

When my 21yr old SS comes over to visit we leave my 15 yr old daughter in charge if we go out for anything.  She is more responsible that a lot of adults I know lol.
