I babysit a 8 year old boy the son of my neighbours but he randomly pulls his pants down and wants me to look, he even gets hard sometimes. I always tell him to stop and pull his pants up, he doesn't react and just leaves or groans , last time he asked me if he can touch me and i asked what he really meant with touch so he started feeling me up and i was shocked and almost slapped him, what kind of perverted boy is that? I threatened him to tell his parents and he started crying and begging me not to. He still does it sometimes and i threathen him a lot bur he always starts crying and i have no idea what to do, I'm thinking about quitting the job

Glad you asked. It sounds a difficult situation.
You need to tell the parents. No blame or shame is required and this isn't at all about punishing the boy (he's only 8!), it's about protecting him and stopping an unhealthy behaviour. You shouldn't be feeling/acting like he was an adult equal to you, but a child in your care who doesn't really understand the implications of his actions. Be kind and take responsibility.
I'd also suggest talking to an experienced person you can trust (maybe your parents?) to help you make the right decision about quitting, and about telling authorities (if there's any concerns of abuse by a parent). And just as important, to support your actions & emotions. You don't need to feel alone, just because you're rightly being discreet.1

I would tell his parents about everything he does and that you feel uncomfortable. Imagine if they found out via videotape all that he did, wouldn't it be weird that you didn't tell them.
If you tell them the whole truth and they still say "He's only a child blah blah" Quit.
You don't need that foolishness in your life, and it could potentially end bad for you. Better to save yourself the potential trouble.0
