I watch my cousin's little girl. They pay me $10 a day. I also run an in-home daycare and my regular parents pay $25 day. I do not mind helping family out. Her and her husband have been married a little over two year. They got pregnant and then got married. He finished college and has a full time job. She is going to school full time and finishes up at the end of the next fall semester. Money is really tight and they do receive some assistance (which I am not bashing, we have received assistance in the past as well to get back on our feet). Anyway, they are good parents, working hard to make things better, not abusing the system. I definitely don't mind helping the out. My cousin just asked me today if I would watch their daughter while they go on a cruise (she would pay me). And then talking more it came out that they go on date nights twice a month. I was kind of in shock. It made me feel like I should ask them for more money for childcare if they can afford these things. Even if it was just another $5 a day. Yes, they are family and I again I don't mind helping, but their daughter is also taking a spot in my daycare where I could have a fully paying child. Would you say something?
