I feel your pain TG,  We have 3 or our grand-kids with us and they are a handful as well.  Like you there are 2 girls and a boy all under the age of 6.  Unlike you it is the middle girl that causes the problem's.  She is constantly asking questions and will not listen or do like she is told.

So was the Atilla the Hun Head Start program and the Vlad the Third nursery it seems. Oddly, Pol Pot's Pre School had an opening, but they chose TG instead. Must be the picturesque setting.

You may have hit on something---  how about babysitting as an effective method for birth control ? Nothing like a good dose of reality to wake a prospective parent up  lol

But, most of us would say, "my kid will never be like that" :bigrofl:

Get a roll of nickles. Tell the boy you will give him one nickle for ever lap he does around the yard. By the time you get thru half a roll he won't have the energy to be a pest.

If they were actually family it might be a bit different. The mom is the problem.. but i cant make her put the dishes away but the boy has learned to eat at the table and to say please and thank you already. His oldest sister is helping me with him. She is a good kid.

Best thing you could do is keep him occupied. If he's having fun, he will gain respect for you.

My wife kept a girl for the day once. Her mother is one of those obsessive-compulsive, germ-a-phobes, who had to have a new house built because she couldn't stand the thought of living with someone else's germs. So, Little Lucy spent the day outside playing in the dirt with our kids. Probably the most fun she ever had. But when her mother picked her up, I think the lady swallowed her gum! Lynn never got asked to kid sit again.

My ex had a daycare for a short time. She had one mother who was a germaphobe. She wanted her to wash the whole house down with bleach. I was glad when they left.

In that case, send him into the yard and make him pick stones, wash each one, and make a wall out of it. On second thought, getting him into GT's or animals would be a better idea.

I recall that a while back you were looking for a way to make some cash.

"Gerald's House of Horror Daycare"

"Gerald's child training center"

You could dress like a clown and do chain saw juggling, teach greased pig catching, sheep shearing and all sorts of stuff.
