I like my kids and can handle other people's kids, but I have my limits to other people's kids. If I ask a friend to babysit, I always offer to pay. Never free so I won't get stuck in the favor's rut. I don't like the idea of trading babysitting for babysitting since I have four kids...as to why I pay for my kids to be watched. I make sure my kids are fed and have back up clothes, snacks, extra items for when they get watched either at my home or others homes.
I will occasionally watch the friend's kid, but the kid is 3 and steals (Editing: STEALS as in her mom is aware that she does it and continues to let her do it). The mom complains about how I do things and I put up with it, but since she's the only person willing to give me and my kids the time of day, I suck it up. Is it WRONG for me to offer to pay so I can get out of the favor's trap? I don't want to watch her child so I'd rather pay and be done with it. Is that wrong?
