Would you babysit your 15 yr old sibling twice a week so your mom can work her 12 hr shift? This is the permanent arrangement, how would you feel?

(I know its not a baby, lol)

  • why does a 15 yr old need a sitter? But yes, I would. Moms do so much for there kids. If you can give a little in return, you should.

  • Depends on the WHOLE situation.
    A 15 yr old really isnt that hard to "babysit"
    I have a 16 & 14 yr old and they pretty much do their own thing.
    You would simply be there to eliminate temtations

  • Well can the 15 yr old come to you? I would think it would be better than staying home alone, even if your sibling is trustworthy, other kids have a way of finding out where the parents who are not at home are! Are you going to get paid, are you going to swap so she can watch your kids sometimes?
