Dont know where to post this question but I watch 2 girls that are my sister in laws best friends kids. They are good kids but she only pays me $100 a week. that is for both kids. One is almost 3 years old and the other is 4 years old. I didnt have a problem in the beginning with the price because I am not a licensed provider i am just basically a baby sitter since I work every other week. She offered to provide the meals and i felt that was fair. I am unemployed of course and my husband doesnt make much because he is still going to school so is only making like 12 bucks an hour. lets just say we are on welfare for medicaid and food stamps too. This is the second week I have watched them and last week she forgot to pay me on the mondy and had to remind her on wed. this week still has not paid me yet and hasnt provided meals, plus they drink juice like crazy and i dont have money for juice. how do you remind w/out being rude?

You need to find out the licensing laws in your state. You may not need a license. You should not be paid less because you don't have a license.
Who makes what and who is working is confusing and how often you watch the kids is confusing. Someone makes $12 an hour. I don't know where you live but making $12 an hour at a job is good an making $12 an hour baby sitting is great! I don't know how you would be on medicaid and food stamps if either of you are making $12 an hour. You have to report baby sitting. If anyone ever gets mad at you and reports you for not reporting what you make you can be fined or even go to jail.
Kids that age are only supposed to drink a max of 4 oz a juice a day according to the American Academy of Pediatrics. They should drink water.
