Oh I've been following that with disgust and horror, it's like a train wreck to me - reading it makes me sick to my stomach, but I can't stop myself.

And rereading her original post, I've misunderstood a couple things. [fish] Sorry for wasting peoples time!

So many people are hung up on achievements. What did you do today? What are you planning? Sometimes, just getting through the day is an achievement in itself.

Chimera is NOT a camp counselor- she thinks she is a clown and conducts (sometimes dangerous) circuses in her yard. Sadly that is not a joke.

I know she is not one now, but if you re-read her first post to this thread, she states that she was a CIT at the Y and then goes on to list this one child's unforgivable activites that caused Chimera to "dump her."

If you re-read my second post, you will see that I asked her whether this child was on her property or at the Y when she interracted with Chimera. If at the Y, the her actions were imho, incorrect. If at home, then kudos to her. I am familiar with her situation right now.

I swear, it was funnier in my head.
Yeah, I used to be pink. vanilla_pink.

I saw that after I posted, but left it for those who probably were confused by her post.

Her child is not even there- supposedly he is at Disneyworld with his grandparents. Chimera just likes having kids at her house, preforming circus acts, and then bitching about them here on snopes.

It's like an episode of Fear Factor and Ripley's Believe it or Not all rolled into one.

Unfortunately there are children involved.

My child was only in Florida for a week. I don't deal with these kids when my kid isn't here (sorry). My kid likes playing with these children. I'm not getting paid to watch them. They just sort of show up at my home and I do occasionally try to entertain them. When my kid was younger I actually invited professional performers over partly so they could distract the other kids for a while so I could spend time with my own boy in my own yard.

I was a CIT in my youth (I am not a councelor), I worked a kids soup kitchen, I had a couple jobs involving children but now that I have my kid he's the one I think of. I have a soft spot for some of these kids but I'm rarely "performing" to them... I pretend to ignore them half of the time.

Although I do try to find activities for them and show them some stuff... if they show an interest I'll try to teach them what I can (within "reason"). Some of them think its "tight" (I don't know if that's good or bad). Most of them can entertain themselves when I'm involved with other activities or pretending to ignore them.

The parents of the children are more than welcome to come over and supervise their children. A lot of the parents just thank me for letting their kids hang out here (and some can see everything that goes on from their yards).

Yeah I get ticked sometimes. I've encountered a few that I've had personality conflicts with. But overall they are good kids... but they are still kids. Kids can be annoying at times by just being theirselves. Other peoples kids can be very annoying but at least you can send those home. They also know how to play me. They do things like draw chalk murals on my driveway of my kid and me and they're gernerally polite and honest kids.

I'll admit that I did have another batch of kids before my son was born. Most of them were great but it was a "one bad apple" situation (then I had my kid and an excuse that I didn't have time for the kids). Back then it was mostly just boys that came over to shoot some hoops or curious kids wanting to see if I had any interesting animals (I was still active in wild life rehab back then).

Oh heck. No I never dumped a camp kid (I didn't have that authority), a kid's kitchen kid or anything else where I was meant to be watching a child and accepted direct responsibility for them. I just smiled and did my best.

I threw an annoying girl out of my own back yard. Sorry for any confusion. I'm not saying its much better but if I take actual responsibility for a child I do my best. (Until someones clothes go into a river then I remind the counselor leaders that if its a boy I can't get involved in such matters and laugh my butt of about the situation.)
