CM Club: When relationships don't work?

I feel such a sense of relief when I gave notice to a child yesterday.
I tried really hard - but she was rude & offensive to people in my house - she manipulated the other children - she antagonised my child and verbally abused my DP.
I eventually gave the child notice because she lied with such imagination/enthusiasm/accuracy/inventiveness I could not risk her deciding that we had been "mean" and making up lies about my DH & I in a similar way.
I put the mum & dad off with an excuse - but they guessed it was her behaviour and admitted she was receiving psychiatric care
I wish I had known - it would have made a difference right from the start
I am now just glad it is over - after 9m hard work - I was never going to win
