My son is about to turn 3 in 2 weeks and has had 17 babysitters. I'm a single mother and I'm having trouble keeping a babysitter for him. They all quit on me, they apologize for quitting but they can't take my son's behavior and attitude. To the point that when the babysitter doesn't pay attention to his tantrums he hits them or her children. He knows what wrong and right. You tell him don't take of your shoes and he'll literally stare at you and take one off at a time. He stares at you to test you. Time outs don't work anymore. He is not that bad with me but it's not possible that ALL of his ex babysitters tell me the same . What can I do. Please help. I'm desperate, I don't receive child support and I'm not looking to receive any. Daycare is expensive and I don't qualify for Government help because " I make too much" which I don't. I live on my own and pay babysitter all on my own.
