Oh, they are very sweet. Used to babysit a 4yo with Down's and she was a heartbreaker. Didn't help her parents raised to be a wild child... kid went the bathroom on the furniture, liked to run around naked, same stuff younger kids usually do. But there seemed to be no discipline whatsoever.<quoted text>Maybe it's a PSA campaign, aimed at reducing ignorance about Down's kids?(Some of the sweetest folks ever to grace the earth, by the way....)
And I was hired as a 15yo to babysit when Mom went out, even though Dad was still hanging around. I got pissed off when Dad tried to spank 4yo for wetting the bed. I mean really? They let her piss on the couch, but they're gonna spank her when she pees while sleeping? They were bad news and I quit after babysitting her twice.
But I liked her. She was a sweetie living in a nightmare, I'd imagine.
