Well, he is out of control!! I don't know what to do. I babysit for 10 dollars a night but they should pay me 60 dollars a night! He is the worst kid ever, and his parents never say anything against him. Sometimes i just feel like beating the straight sh!t out of him but i can't even touch him or he'll yell bloody murder. For example:
Im drinking a coke and he is sitting down watching t.v
"Hey giselle, what are you drinking?"
"soda, why you want some?"
"NOT ANYMORE!! HAHAHAHA!!"
and then he knocks the can on the floor and spills it all over the rug...
Oh and then once i was vacuuming and he went outside and brought mud in the palm of his hands and smeared it all over the rug! Oh my god! can someone help me? I tell his parents but they insist jacob is an angel. -_- and this is what they say!
"oh giselle, you over-react! Jacob just likes you!!"
"umm i think it's the opposite of that."
"Oh well i'm sorry but i have to go! heres for tonight" *hands me ten dollars*
And then jacob just stands their smiling...

    Bring in a videocamera and record his behavior-- then show it to his parents and explain why you won't babysit anymore.

    Tell them that you have been very tolerant of his behavior and he refuses to behave and if they cannot aknowlege that he isn't behaving correctly when watched, they will have to find someone else. Being a mom of 5 , I know that not just others but my kids aren't exactly angels. The parents don't want to deal so they have pawned him on you. if you decide to give it one last shot, if he acts out, make him stand up against the wall with his hands above his head, leaning foward and legs slightly spread and make him stay thre for 5 minutes and see how he likes it. Let him tell and if they say something say he needed a time out,or disciplin! Little kids feed on fear ( not of him but what his parents might say) and intimidation. show him you aren't gona take it and his tune will change a little bit.

    FIRST of all how many hours a night do you spend babysitting this kid? Ten dollars seems like a total rip off.

    SECOND you need to figure out a way to get some sense into the parents. If that means not cleaning up the kid's messes so the parents have to deal with it directly, they are more likely to fix the situation.

    THIRD you have to fight back with the kid in a language he'll understand. Don't react to something when he does it (he's most likely doing it purely to get you to react to him). Keep him busy, find something for him to do preferably outside or some place where he is least likely to ruin things.

    I actually do it for like 3-4 hours, depending on where his parents go do. They are my next door neighbors, that kid has recked all of my mom's garden. She worked really hard on it too, man i hate this kid,

    You are actually only making $2.50 - $3.33 per hour, which is extremely underpaid. You should absolutely ask for more money (there's no way they're going to be able to find anyone else to work for 3-4 hours and only pay them ten dollars). It's kind of insane, you may not be old enough to work so you arent used to regular/standard pay, but these adults are and I'm sure they know how much they should be paying a person. It is quite obvious they are taking advantage of you (probably because you're their neighbor and know them personally).
