    Asking a four-year-old to babysit a two-year-old? I didn’t think that even Ellie was that dumb. And when the inevitable disaster happens, she’s probably going to scold Lizzie.

    yep, watching him break things….NEVER leave a child in charge of another child. It never works

    Don’t worry, by the time Liz is a school teacher, she will know how to watch kids.

    For the first time I will agree with the Elly bashers. This is the dumbest thing I have ever seen her do. Leaving Lizzie to baby-sit a toddler????

    That depends on the age of the children involved. My brother is 7 years younger than me and I had little tasks of watching him from when he was pretty little. I remember clear as day that the night the Berlin Wall came down – he was 5 – my parents left me in charge in order to go see the celebration. Never had any trouble. And this was before cell phones.

    My just-turned-five-year-old daughter was very bright and responsible for her age, and I once asked her to watch her baby sister (who I had just put on a bed to change) while I ducked out to grab something for an instant. The ensuing WAAAAAH! told me that that wasn’t such a hot idea.

    However, my mom said that one day when she was six, she was left with her two-year-old sister while the rest of the family worked in the fields. After awhile Mom realized that her sister needed changing, so she did it. She said it took all afternoon. Mom was very responsible.

    I was 6 years older than my little brother and I remember my parents having me watch him as an infant waiting in a hot car while they did the weekly shopping(after church). My parents did things that I would never do with my kids. needless to say, they did not babysit our kids.

    with these new laws, there’s no way your parents would leave your children in a car, they would be arrested on sight…no offense I really don’t want to be mean…I’m sorry
