And the child in question is 14...not 3 or 4.Since the OP is a teacher (which means she has a clear background check) with years of teaching and nanny experience, I would think Mom made an excellent choice for someone to watch over her child. However, no one can make OP care about Dad's kids...
Then call Dad and tell him his son is there and you are going out. Or move. Or evict Dad. Lots of options.I am a stranger to this mom. I am a competent adult but I am not getting paid and she feels it's acceptable to drop him off in a house instead of keeping him till the dad gets off work
As a teacher, I'm sure OP is aware of the word "No!".I am not sure that we should be quite so unsympathetic to the OP. I doubt that any of us would be thrilled to have a child just dumped on us when we were not expecting to have to care for a child. She could have had plans of her own that were interrupted by that happening.
However, on the other hand it apparently has only happened once so far this summer, and we are already half way into July, therefore its not a chronic problem.
