 Okay I am the baby sitter to my mother in law'a kids.
One of them (8yrs old) Punched me, kicked me, slapped me in the face ,and threw a large rock and it hit me in the mouth ( IN PUBLIC!)
If she was my kid I would've busted her ass, but I can't. What would you have done?

Called the mother immediately and report the behavior. And if I were you I would find out wot kind of punishments you can use and start utilizing them. If you aren't provided with any options I would stop watching he child.

Busted her ass.

Since that seems a bit inappropriate I would have called her mother and had her tell her mom herself what she had done. And, then I would have explained to the mother that I find this behavior to be completely inexcusable and unacceptable.

Take her out of the public place immediately, and take her home. Remain Calm, but  tell her firmly that her behavior will not be tolerated by you at all, and send her to her room, making sure you remove t.v., music, video games, etc. Have her stay there until you can speak with her mother and discuss how she wants this kind of behavior handled. If you are going to continue to care for this child, you have to let her know that you are in charge, and let her know how you expect her to act. If she is used to getting away with acting like that it may take a few times with consistent conseuences for her to understand that you mean business, but you will earn her respect. Show her that you care and that you can have fun together, but only when she is behaving appropriately. Good Luck!!!!!
