What Do you look for in a babysitter?!

i need some help im thinking about leaving my job and if my bf lands this job he is interviewing for tomorrrow i can quit my job and i was thinking about babysitting for my own income so i can pay my student loans and crap. i was wondering what you all would look for in a baby sitter and stuff. would u want the babysitter to be certified in first aid and adult/child CPR, and how much would be to much to charge or what would u be willing to pay.

any advice would help u can leave me a message on here or email me at or message me on yahoo messenger at wvcougar_2005
