This is the first year I have had to use a sitter that was not family. For the first month of summer she went to a day camp, VBS, and a dance camp, now she is at home with a sitter she has been here 2 weeks. Well DD,6, said she is boring and will not play with her. Okay well I know how DD can be so I just told her to ask her to play every once in a while. Then she took DD with her to the post office, I gave the okay, when I got home DD was in her pjs and hair a mess, DD said she asked her about getting dressed and was told she was okay. Then when I ask DD what she had for lunch its oh I did not have anything or the sitter will say she did not say she wanted anything till 330 and just got her a happy meal.....really I make sure the kitchen is full of fruit, veggies, and yummy foods...no junk DD has allergies. DD also told me that the sitter had a guy over 3 times, never told her she could have anyone over, yet I would not mind if I was asked.
So needless to say I have let the sitter go and I have another one coming in Monday and I need to know how I should layout the rules? Like DD is to get dress, have a good meal at the right time, does some work sheets, plays outside.....ect. with out seeming like the crazy mom.
