My friend/ next door neighbor has a 12 year old son. He's the oldest of her 4 kids. She lets him get away with anything and everything! This lil boy is constantly beating up his lil brother who is only 9. He's got a horrible mouth, and he doesn't listen worth a damn (but what kid does) Probably the most concerning part of his behaviour is the fact that he ALWAYS has a knife in his hand and is ALWAYS stabbing something!
And what does she do about it? NOTHING!! There are very few instances where she will finally lose it with him and when she does, she takes it way to far and starts punching him! And not lightly either!
Last night I babysat her kids, (i needed the money) and everything was fine the first few hours, because the oldest wasnt here yet. As soon as he got here it all went to shit! My son is currently sleeping on an air mattress, and as soon as the kid walked into my sons room decided to jump on the bed and popped it! Then started cussing out all the lil kids. And to top it all off started punching the crap out of my son and his lil brother! So I made him sit in the corner until his mom got here. I told him if he wanted to act like a 2 year old thats exactly how he'd be treated. '
I texted her last night around 11pm to tell her what was going on. Keep in mind she promised to be home no later than 10pm. So after several failed attemps of calling and texting her, she FINALLY calls my husband back at 330 this morning! I'm so frustraied with her! From now on I do not care how bad I need the money I will not babysit for her ever again! So what would you do in my situation?
