Ok i babysit for my neighborns two sons ages 8 and 4. Then i watch for 2 other kids ages 10 and 6. Then i have my two sons ages 4 and 1.5 years old. When i babysit for the 8,6 and 10 year old it seems like the whole damn neighbor hood comes right after school Since we have another 10 to 12 kids extra. I have had some kids just throw their backpack like i am in charge of them as well. My neighbor with the 8 and 4 year old works until 4pm, then she comes home and its just her and i watching about 12 kids from our damn neighbor hood since no other parent seem to not care where their damn kids are. So from 3:30 to 7:30 or somtimes even later we have kids running everywhere.
And with summer coming around and i can't watch 6 kids that are in my care plus 12 other. So me and me neighbor agreeded that we should just have each kid picks one friend they can have over and this friend can stay and play for a week, the they trade off. And when another chld that was not invited to play comes and ask just send that child away and tell them when its your turn you can be there.
I have already had to tell 4 or 5 kids to get off my sons two 12inch bikes and my others son little tike trike and cozy coupe car. Since we already had to fix it twice last summer and spring.
Is this to mean or the right thing to do.
