  • or are you talkin about ur self?

  • It depends on where you live. Where I live I pay $5/hr for two kids, but I have my friends watch my children and I watch theirs. I really don't think CNA certified, EMT certified, Red Cross Certified or 6 plus years of experience really matters. None of my friends are certified in any of that and they are great with my children. I would NEVER pay more for those certifications, because I feel they are unnecessary. CPR is great, but that's all I look for. JMO.

  • Yes it is mama2my2boys, but like I said my friends do it and I watch their children for the same amount so it's fair. We were going to do IOU's but it seems like those never work so we decided on an affordable price. I used to bring my child to daycare fulltime and it was $170/week..
