Every sitter I have left my 8 yr old son with has had issues

Customer Question

Every sitter I have left my 8 yr old son with has had issues with him being involved with the other kids both boys and girls in an inappropriate sexual manner. This has happened 3 times in the last two years. I know that he knows better because he's been punished over and over but it continues to come up as an issue. I don't know what to do I am a single mother and I have to work but I can not leave him anywhere without fear this will come up. Some advice please.
