    Default friend asks me to watch her kids all how many times is to much to ask ??

    ok one of my friends (well sort of i now avoid her as much as possible) has 2 daughter ages 6and 8 they are rude annoying little brats my friends a single mum lives in nsw (father lives in qld) but just cause she moving she keeps asking me to watch her kids last time i watch them her 6yr old daughter pulled her pants down and tryed to get my 6 yr old son to take his pants off and hop in his bed with her (grrr she didn't even disciple her daughter she just laughed it off) since last night she has asked me to watch her daughter both today and tomorrow i seen her yesterday and she said nothing just waits till shes home and either txts me or fb messages me ive told her i have plans (fake ones) even last week she asked me to watch her dog for a few days when she knew i had plans an wouldnt be home much and the fact she knows i live on an acre and my yard isnt fenced apart from where my dog is but our dogs dont get along

    arghhh she's doing my head in i wish she would move far far away

    That behaviour from a six year old is more than a discipline issue- she may have been sexually abused. Have you thought of that? You may need to talk to your friend as that is not normal behaviour.
    if you don't want to mind the kids- say no. Be firm.

    You have 2 choices. You can tell her straight out you are not interested in babysitting at all, ever or you can just keep saying 'no' and hope she gets the message eventually.

    Maybe just say if you are to continue watching them she'll have to start paying for it, or say no and suggest she looks into finding a sitter off a websites like findababysitter.com.au or gumtree. Most on findababysitter are very reliable and qualified. Good luck its an awkward situation to be in.

    To be honest if I was your "sort of" friend and knew your real attitude towards my children, I wouldn't want you to look after them.
    Just say no.
