    I'm a live-in babysitter for a single mom...she has 2 boys aged 4 & 8 1/2 that drive me insane. They have a 22 yr old sister, but she has cerebal palsy and spends day in a wheelchair cuz she can't talk, walk or feed herself.....but she is actually my fave one in the family.

    How do u get other people's kids to clean their room, eat lunch, and stop aggravating each other all the damn time....or having them erupt at you as if they declared world war 3?

    If anyone else wants this damn job...let me know. You will get free rent, free food, the mom will rent u movies every night, world's biggest headache.....and NO paycheck

    eek. I think I'd rather have the stress of being a cashier or waitress anything but that. I have very few nerves, and I think I would snap. I say kudos to you....takes a strong person. :D

    Wow, I've did a lot of babysitting before I had children of my own, and it is definitely hard caring for other people's children! With your own, you do certain things that you know will work. With other people's children, many times they've been brought up differently from how you brought up your own kids, and you have to worry about stepping on the parents' toes.

    I agree with AshtonsMom! Kudos to you, sounds like you've really got our work cut out for you there!

    You're intimidating to grown men, let alone little kids. What do you expect? Besides, if I was a little kid and had a hot babysitter like you I'd do whatever you said too :X

    As for babysitting other peoples kids, I don't do it for that reason.

    I have on occasion. It's something I avoid at all costs. Unless I know I'm able to discipline the children, then I don't mind. Like my 2 little brothers. I babysat them every day for 6 years, but I was also able to bust their asses when I felt the need.

    you can yell at these 2 boys & they laugh at you. If your sick of their messy room or the mess they leave anywhere else...you can threaten to throw the stuff away....(which I put stuff in trash every Wed morning before the trash gets picked up) I even tried to send them to the neighbors to get them out of my hair for awhile but the neighbor was gone

    You do it every Wed morning as a scare tactic? Actually take the shit, and don't give it back for a few weeks. They like video games? Take 'em. They like their remote control car? Take it. Tell them they can have fun after they take care of their responsibilities. Then when they scream and cry and kick and shout, ignore them.

    Play a game, call it escape artist, roll them up in a blanket then duct tape the thing in 4 places, carry them to another room and tell them the first one out gets a prize. Then walk out, close the door turn up the music and sit down to a nice cup of tea.

    a scare tactic....or a way to clean up the mess.
    If they don't like the way I clean then they should start cleaning up themselves.

    Usually if they hear their mother pull in the driveway, then they run into their room and cram everything into the closet. Then the mother is up until 2am yelling at them to clean out the closet & whatever else.
