I was bruising the web to see if I can start a day care.
I'm a stay home dad and I have sett up to 8 kids @ one time. And I'm good with kids, I sit a 7 year old and her brother of 5 2-3 hours a week now. And with my own 8,4,&2! That's five kids. I don't get $ cuzz its friends and they just came to US presently so I'm helping out.

This made me think how many of you will choose a 13 year old girl over a man as a sitter?

First of all I don't like babysitters regardless of their gender. I think one of the parent should be always with the child. Best protection is with the parents having said that T
there are quite number of male sitter available as well. Lastly you have do your job honestly and specially around with kids. All the best.

How about a teen boy? Is it ok to work as a babysitter? I started workig at 12 and saved up for my first car at 13! So a girls job is = to a boy's job right?

Be honest, will you trust a man or a woman? And why?

I know the whole it's not a man's job! I just think I can make some $$$ at it.
