I have a friend who decided to start a family too early (before she graduated H.S.) Now she has two kids ages 2 and 3. She wants to go into the army so she can go to school, but has nowhere for her kids to stay. She had them stay with her aunt, but her aunt mistreated them and won't watch them again.
I would like to help her out by watching her kids again. What things should I consider before offering my home to her kids? What should the "rules" be as far as how much I should get paid? If the mom leaves for the Army and then doesn't pay, what should I do? Basically, I just want everyone's opinion on this. Thanks in advanced.
