How do I tell my babysitter nicely not to take my child anywhere during the day unless it's an emergency?
the babysitter is my cousins wife. she is super nice but she is always taking my kid with her to dr appointments, to pick up her oldest from school or to run errands or whatever. I figured it was just implied that since her job is babysitting kids out of her home that she would treat it as such and stay home. even when she has her full amount of kiddos she still loads them up and takes off with them. I don't want a family fight or for her to just do it and not tell me what she's doing (she never really tells me anyway when she is taking my kid anywhere which is another issue. she could be going anywhere anytime and I dot know it) so on and so forth. any suggestions? I could take my child somewhere else but I can't afford it! what wouldn't gently say in this situation?
