Babysitter Drama

Theres a boy that lives next door to me, 16 years old and has 3 younger stepbrothrs and sisters. He has been babysitting for us during the day in the past summer and watches the kids sometimes after school. My husband and I were going out for 2 days and I asked if he could watch my kids, Of course he said yes and I thought it was no big deal. I couldn't have felt more sorry for the kid when we got back. One day before we left my five year old decided that pants weren't his thing anymore, after constant efforts for him to keep them on he still refused. At the same time when we left my three year old didn't want the babysitter to see him while using the bathroom, so he just went hid in a corner and went in his pants. On top of that the two were hyper all weekend and wouldn't go to sleep the first night, resulting in them being cranky in the morning. I felt really sorry and gave him $50 additional.
