    Help!

    I am 17 and I live in a small town in wisconsin... I have been asked to go babysit a 10month old little boy I know the mother and I will be going with one of my close friends who is good friends with the child's mother. I have been told that the mother lets someone who sits there and smokes pot all day watch the child. I am not 100% sure but I believe the mother smokes weed also. My question is can I get into trouble for babysitting this kid in a home where weed may be present? I want to become a police officer so I obviously don't want to take any chances in getting that taken away as an option for my future.
    What makes someone a hero? According to the dictionary a hero is someone, typically a man, who is admired for courage or noble qualities. In the dictionary heros are also known as the chief male character in a book, play, or movie, who is typically identified with good qualities. A hero is someone who walks into your life as it is crumbling to pieces and is there for you when it seems like the rest of the world is walking out.

    There is probably weed in more of the houses that you've been in than you know. If it's not yours, and there's nothing to suggest that it's yours, then you won't get in trouble for it. If you somehow do, this won't disqualify you from service with most departments as long as you are honest about it during the background check.

    Unless there's some other reason that you think you should avoid these people, take the job if you want it.

    here's my thought. If you are leary about it at all then don't take it. Simple as that.

    Berserk makes a good point, but I'm gonna go along with pgg and say that if you're leary about it... stay home.

    Just to clarify, I'm saying that the potential presence of weed in the house isn't that big a deal. If that's all it is, then don't worry. But pgg and code3bg are right. If you feel uneasy about going there for whatever reason, then trust your instincts.

    Thanks everyone, I ended up going but I left about an hour later cause thats all they where talking about and that they just wanted to get high. I said I just didn't want to be around that type of stuff. I was asked to babysit him again for today but I said no for the fact that I am super busy today and for the fact that I didn't want to be in that situation.

    Always go with your gut feeling in situations like this. It sounds like you made a good choice by leaving.
