If I would be watching a 5 month old I would take them for walks in the stroller, play with them by using toys that they like, I would bath them and make sure they are freed and happy.
If I am being asked to work overtime, I will only do it if I am getting paid for it. It all depends on the situation.
In this situation, I would try to talk with them about why they are not listening, and if they choose to continue to not respect me I will put them in time out until they behave.
In my area they charge $15.00 per hour to work with specialneeds children.
