  • I personally wouldn't do it sounds like they are really picky and they'll probably just end up mad at you about some rediculous thing

  • I would past on that. But if you have nothing else and have to do it then i would charge them $75 a week.

  • I wouldn't sit for them... I don't do mirco management!!! Sounds like they have real control issues... do they site on the floor and play with the kid for 3-4 hours a day??? I think you are just setting yourself up for a lot grief from them.

  • I agree with everyone else. I wouldn't do it either. Plus they want you to play with him the whole time. What if you needed a bathroom break or something?
