Love Being A - posted on 11/27/2012 ( 3 moms have responded )
Okay, last fall my friends asked if I could start watching their three boys because their previous daycare provider was drinking too much to care for them. I was astonished, shocked and quickly agreed.
I now know why she drank!! Lol
The boys ages 12, 10 and 8 are VERY VIOLENT to each other.... And becoming increasingly hostile to me. I cannot stand this behavior, I have first gone to the parents, when they we're paying me.....now that they are four months behind in paying me, I find my patience thin and I am being a little more vocal.
The youngest, the most physical and verbally (I am at q loss for words) is now starting to show jealousy in a violent/hostile way to my baby boy, 18 months. I will not stand for that and have been "mean" to the you gets to get my point across.
Obviously, the parents could care less. No one in their family will watch them.
I am not completely ready to concede this fight! There is goodness in these kids...
My kids are basically the same age, but they love each other, openly.... Hostile and violent environments make us all edgy.
What can I do? Has anyone experienced this?
The oldest is a great and wonderful kid... Maturing the more he is away from the younger ones.
Any advice would be GREAT!!
