I'm 45, two children (16 and 26). I have cared for many children of all ages over the years, but never for pay.. I recently started sitting jobs for payment. I started a 1-night a week (sleep over) sitting for an 8 year old boy, and an 11 year old girl for $120.00 per night. Last night was my 2nd time. The first time was not easy, but I thought I'd give it a second chance. The father told me that his daughter is ADD and is in a counseling program. Both children are hyper and difficult, but my problem is with the 11 year old. She has shown the following behaviors:
Calling me a stupid bi*ch, stupid idiot, I hate you, etc.
Threatening to hit/bite me
Screaming, yelling, tantrums
Threatening to tell parent abc... about me (which is not true)
Harrasing her brother to cause a fight.
