Ever had to deal with a babysitter who just doesn't follow the rules? 😤 One concerned parent, who's been dealt a wild genetic hand, decided to hire a babysitter to help with their 9-year-old son. With a family history of diabetes, high cholesterol, cancer, and obesity, the parent is particular about their children's diet. 🥦 They set some simple rules for the babysitter, but things didn't go as planned... 🍬

Babysitter Breaks the Rules, Gets Fired 🔥

After hiring a babysitter recommended by a close friend, our concerned parent provided her with a list of rules and a recipe book for simple meals. 📝 But when they returned home, they found their son more hyper than usual. Turns out, the babysitter had given him candy after 7pm, breaking the rules! 🍬 Not only that, but candy was the only thing he'd eaten all day. 😲 The parent decided to fire the babysitter, who begged for a second chance, but was shown the door. 🚪 Now, with mixed reactions from friends and family, the parent wonders if they should've given her another chance. 🤔 Was it too harsh, or did the babysitter get what she deserved? Let's see what people have to say about this sticky situation... 💬

"NTA. Babysitter only gave candy? Disrespectful to rules." 🍬🚫😱
