  • I'm glad that you stood your ground with her - her kids are not your responsibility, they are hers. I hope she gets her act together for her kids sake.

  • If she goes to Job and Family Services she can apply for daycare assistance. She will pay a percentage according to what she makes, and they will pay the rest.

  • Wow. I can understand not wanting to babysit for free, but what do you want her to do? She can't work if she doesn't have a babysitter. Have you made suggestions on what she could do, or where to go for help?

    IMO, I would never charge to babysit a family members child(ren).
