Babysitting problem, need advice please. See details. Thank you.
I am babysitting my best friends daughter who is 7,because her parents are on a out of state business venture. She has a high fever,and the dr. ordered her to be in bed by 4 pm, when I called.( She has medicine which I gave her ) The problem is she is very restless, and seemed afraid about something... I tried to comfort her with games, brushing her hair, giving her her favorite stuffed animals.. singing to her, reading her bedtime stories... which calmed her a little, then all of a sudden she said.. "bullies ! bullies at school.. they don't stop bothering me..I won't go back to school ! "and she started to cry uncontrollably,and kicking in her bed..I am very worried about her.i tried to explain to her we would find out who they are to stop that. but she is obviously traumatized and needs to sleep,or she will get more sick. There is no way to contact the parents now, as they are in a business meeting for a few hours.. what can I do and/or say to calm her down and comfort her to sleep?
