I am babysitting at this very moment, two males, 7 and 5 I think. I thought I passed the real hurdle when I finally got them into bed after extracting then carrying out their daily rituals. I sighed a sigh of innocent relief

But then, just as I let my guard down, I sensed uqnuiet from their bedroom, they were arguing, door open, or door closed. So I woke them both up and hit them hard round the face....

Well thats want I wanted to do, I ended the dispute by tricking them into admitting that a compromise would be having no lights on, but the door open.

Luckily the younger one didn't cotton on that the compromise defeated the very point of the door being open in the first place.

I know this does'nt sound that bad, but these situations put me in a nervous and chaotic disposition...

anyone else had babysitting nightmares? (not nightmares of being babysat)

Aww, poor oo. My babysittees always rock and bring me stuff to eat. But enjoy yourself anyway. Raid the fridge or the sweet-cupboard as proper vengeance. Then let on really subtley that they were badly behaved. And don't forget your money!

Oh dear... Once when I was around 14 I was babysitting three boys, between the ages of 7 and 12 they were playing happily outside with their friends and I was watching them. Their parents phoned and after asking the usual questions that some parents ask they said "Oh, the boys aren't outside, are they? Because they're grounded, and they're not supposed to be outside." To which I quickly replied "Oh no! Of course not!" (whilst thinking to myself, I hate these people). After a few more pleasantries, we hung up and I started the grueling process of rounding up the kids. The two younger ones came in quite easily, but their older brother (who was only a couple years younger than I was at the time) refused to come in. He wanted to play tag and not in the nice little happy friendly way. He was fighting to stay outside and to make me look stupid. He could run faster than I could and he knew it and took advantage of it. Anyways, he was taunting me on the lawn and I was standing on the steps watching him when he got just a little bit too close and I reached out and grabbed his arm to bring him inside. Then he started screaming. Not just screaming, but he started yelling at the top of his lungs "CHILD ABUSE! CHILD ABUSE!" Yeah. I didn't like that kid.

Side note: Before I went and babysat these kids my brother had babysat them before me. He told me I wouldn't be able to handle them because I wasn't strong enough to tie them up and sit on them.

Ugh, just never babysit a kid who is toilet training. I hate hate hate hate hate having to clean up bodily fluids. That was what made me quit babysitting. Of course, now I babysit kids during the summer for one week doing dangerous activities. If they don't listen, I'll make them rappel (abseil) down a cliff. Ahahaha.

Wow... 30 pounds and a double shot of Scotch whiskey. That's like the best babysitting job evar.

All I get when I babysit is $15 and some pablum thrown at me.

It's a watery sort of gruel that they feed babies in Canada. If you get it on your clothes and it dries it forms a hard shell. It's pretty gross.

psht... you baby sit and you get money...


I baby sit and i get yelled at and arrested! hahah get it!?



I wanted to go cow tipping, but i was out of money! BWAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGGAGHAHAHAH



...as for baby sitting. baby sitting is the pits. i can only guess though. ive only baby sat once and it was my niece, and she is the coolest cat on the face of the universe *4 years old and already sarcastic and appreciative of irony.. shes got the blood* so that doesnt count.


im guessing the best way to handle the pressures of baby sitting is to take a big locked box with you and make sure the kids see it as soon as you walk in the house. put the box in the corner and refuse to answer any line of questioning involving the contents of the box. no matter how much they beg you to tell them whats in the box, you just respond "the contents of that box are between me and the box and no one else. not even your parents know whats in that box." the kids will go insane, and do whatever you tell them to as long as they are let in on the secrets of the box. after spending a quiet evening of beating the crap out of their poorly developed motor skills and hand eye coordination in Tekkan, right before they go to bed, tell them if they continue to behave during the night, then you will unlock the box and leave it for them in the morning. as soon as their parents come back, take the box back home, unbeknownst to all that it contained socks. lots and lots of socks.

baby sitting problem solved.

I consider baby sitting to be one of the most noble jobs in the world.

I've never babysat (who would be fool enough to trust me with children? heh), but the people who watched over me in my youth are near and dear to my heart.

I would do the most ridiculously stupid stuff, bother them to no end, and they were still patient with me. I was spoiled and bratty at first, yet somehow they managed to teach me that I was not in fact the center of the universe. They deserve metals.

So to the brave Baby Sitters out there, going to face other people's spoiled children..

I salute you

Doesn't Pablum sound like you're underwater?

Pab-lum.

Pab-lum.

Pab-lum.

Hah! Babysit on New Year's or Canada day(*cough* whatever teh hell you guys celebrate), and complain about how you're missing out on all the fun. I got 50$ last year.

Anyways, the kids I babysit never go to bed, and want to play SPORTS in the HOUSE. And I have SMOKERS LUNGS. And they have a NICE HOUSE. *shudder*

Force the kids to bed, watch TV, drink moderately, raid the cupboards, and you'll be good.
