I completely agree if she had the balls to do it in front of you then she is probally a lot werse when you aren't there. I would find a new place to take her. In the meantime if you can't change her right away I would be making surprised arrivals. Maybe take an extra long lunchbreak and pak down the street and go say hello. If she doesn't know you are coming then she won't adjust her behavior. I would do it as much as you can at diffeent times of the day so she has to wonder if you are going to show up.

If you're not comfortable with the sitter don't leave your kids with her. If she's rough in front of you imagine what she's doing "behind your back".

Personally, I wouldn't stand for that.

I'm with Sarah. If she doesn't think twice about handling her roughly with you there....I'd hate to see what she's doing when you aren't there.
I'd talk to her and consider a new babysitter.

I would be thinking, if she's that rough in front of you, what's she like when you're not there?
