I've done that before. And I don't do well my sanity isn't all that great with other people's kids. Mainly b/c they are raised differently then what I teach my kids, and some are not being raised at all. And/or the parents are short with the payment or dont have it at all or they show up late. There isn't much I can do with that. And I dont feel comfortable with kids in my house that I dont know. But I have watched children in the family (I have 9 nephews and neices,married side). I tell my sister-in-laws that if they did't like the way I raise my kids dont bring yours over b/c they will be treated and punished the same way mine are. That worked out, but since they were family I really couldn't charge them that much b/c they could barely afford daycare that was the reason why I was there for them. My sister in law has two kids that she sends to day care for over 200 dollars a week and they are only there for 3 days a week b/c she is off two days out of the week so I usually watch them on sundays and her dad watches them on saturday. I do it for free but she does help when we need money or food. So it is kinda like dont pay now pay later when we need. B/c she is a single mother of two and she works as a waitress so she needs all the money she can get. Being a waitress now a days isn't very good any more, if you know what I mean. But any way that is why I can't babysit for others specaily for strangers. It's weird I know. but I rather be safe then sorry if something I do doesn't fit with the kids parents. It is easier just to watch family members kids. B/c you know how they work with their kids and everything.<quoted text>
Why don't you babysit a few kids in your home? Tha way, you can stay home with your kids still, yet still make a bit of money each week. Gas prices are causing grocery bills to be higher each week, it's all I can do to not scream at the check out line! We are all in this together. Let's hope a change is coming soon, I think there will be one in 5 months!
