What would you do if your childrens' daytime caretaker was your sister-in-law, she's paid, watches other kids at your home, and spends a great deal of time playing games on her smartphone?

I'd do the same thing as if she was any other person.

If I'm not satisfied with the quality of care my child is receiving, I would sit down the care giver and explain what my problem was. If that didn't resolve the issue, then I would find someone else to look after my kid.

Good luck :)

Thats an easy one, GET A LIST OF YOUR LOCAL GOVERNMENT REGISTERED CHILDMINDERS, THEN BOOK THEM IN. RELATIVES CAN TAKE THE P..S OUT OF YOU . ! you can then come home to a tidy house too :)

Lin, babysitters here in the states don't clean your house lol I think they only way you can get that to happen is if you pay for a nanny and I don't know many who can afford a nanny.



As for the OP, I agree 100% with Denikka. sister-in-law or not, you should be happy with the quality of care your child recieves. And if she's using your home to watch not only your child, but others, and getting paid for it....then she needs to spend less time on the phone and more time with the kids doing her job. Good luck!

Doesn't sound like a good ideal place for children to go to. Sad but true. I would look into Church Ministry Child Cares, call around, get out a yellow book and look up listing in your local area. Get a legal pad and compare them to others, sometimes, I have a lot of friends that do at home daycare's as well, just watch no more than 6 children (by law excluding her own) and makes extra money. Just a thought. Good luck.
