  • No, you need to sit this guy down and talk to him! Make a list of expectations you have for him, like the clothes and the bath, especially if you're only charging that much.

  • No, he needs to take better care of his kids or pay you ALOT more.

  • i agree except for the paying my sis has 3 kids and when i would watch them i never charged her anything. the were 4,2,6m and i have my own kids too.IMO
    But i agree about the bottle and her needing baths before gets there and being in clean clothes. My kids get changed right after breakfast and they get a bath every night. but thats just me i cant stand for my kids to b dirty if their clothes get dirty then i change them but like i said thats just me.

  • Say something. If he can be late then you have the right to speak up. If you don't then you deserve what you are getting.

  • Would a daycare or child care facility give a child a bath? You shouldn't have to do this either unless there was an emergency like a blow-out diaper on the way to your house that morning. That's a sticky situation since it involves family, but it's not like he is paying you well. You don't make enough to put up with this!!!
