E has been asked to do babysitting...
The facts follow,
T is a friend of my daughter who passed away,she has been in E's life since she was small although not for a few years and has moved nearby to us and rest abolished contact,she was a witness at K's trial and instrumental in getting a conviction.
She is a single parent with two boys aged 4 and 9,some people she mixes with are 'worrying',but feel sure this does not happen in front of her boys,she is a good parent.
T has asked E to babysit all night in her house on an as and when basis for pocket money which she wants to do.
E. does not like the dark,has to have all windows covered,she has her own problems,but she is sensible.
T has suggested a friend can go with her,but I don't feel that is a good idea,too much play acting etc..
I have suggested I be "on call" OH not happy with this
It would be an overnight session,T would be out all night
E is 131/2 and seems to be aware of what to do if...
She is studying childcare and development as her options at school,the 4year old will be her case study next year.
I do not want to prevent E from having some responsibility and the chance to earn her own pocket money,but am feeling this is a year too soon.
Over to my wise friends......
