Okay so I am babysitting 2 boys, and I told there mom that I would babysit the next two weeks, well I am almost threw the first week, and I can't do it anymore her kids are really mean, and he hits my 3month old sin my dogs and they are just plain out disrespectful and I am having a really hard time with it. How do I tell there mom that I can't do the last week without getting into a parenting battle with her? Any advice please help!

Thank you it did help me to feel better about telling her as I already did, I just felt like I was in the wrong for it, I know that I am not. But I did loose a friend because of it but like you said my family needs to come first and it always does

Hi Alena, this is a difficult situation, however you and your family must come first. I am a person that dosen't like confrontation or offending people either. What I would do is to tell her something like, that you understand the age of her boys and that boys will be boys, however it is far too much for you to look after them and your baby at the same time.
If she is a decent person, she will understand. Remember that she asked you and to me, gave no thought to the fact you have a baby to look after. Obviously I don't know much except what you have written. Be strong for your family's sake and if she takes offence then that really is her problem. Hope this helps.
