  • In the beginning sounds more like a personal ad.

  • I agree you need to state what it is you are going to do up front.

  • Agree with ^^^^^ above....too many personal details. There are some freaks out there and you do not want them to know anything about your personal life, especially your children.

  • The first part is overly repetitive, and the lower part is missing punctuation in at least one spot, and has at least one spelling error.

  • You give way too much personal information. Say what you do in the beginning. Too wordy.

  • Snellville/Lawrenceville--are you a fellow Georgian like me? I live in Alpharetta!! I think your ad is great, a bit long winded though. That would be the perfect answer to an ad looking for a home assistant.

  • If it's one you're placing, it needs major editing. If it's one you're looking at, it sounds like someone honestly desperate to make some money.

  • I don't have any issues with it. Sounds like it might be something that may appeal to others who are very busy and could use a hand or possibly even seniors who just can't do it themselves.
