This is the kind of stuff that makes me not even want to spend the money on taking her to do fun stuff like this

Tell her that. And next time, don't take her. She has to use her toys to "pay" for a babysitter. She'll learn real quick.

How do you make her pay for a sitter with toys?

Re: Chores and expectations for an almost 6 year old?

My almost 5 year old unloads silverware from the dishwasher, sets the table, makes her beds, puts away her laundry, picks up her toys, and cleans her room (with her brother, they share a room). She gets a $4/week allowance, it will be $5 after her birthday.

As for leaving a fun place, I ignore the fit, pick her up, and leave. Then the next time something fun comes up, I remind her of how she could have gone, but she threw such a fit last time. I've only had to keep her home twice, and she's pretty much given up on meltdowns.
