That's nuts. Unless it was someone who was really in a bad situation, without a car or something, I'd watch the kid for free but they would have to bring the kid to my home.

I wouldn't charge a family member. If it were not family, I guess 150 a week is reasonable.

Yeah I wouldn't do it for that either. Family or not that's a lot of gas that won't cover.

Quoting Anonymous:

And she said 45 a week. Thats why im not doing it..that would barely cover food and gas. Plus her house dsnt have ac. So that wldnt be fun for me and my baby on hot days. I just wanted to see everyones opinions bc i thought it wasnt enough at all for the circumstances




Quoting Orionsgirl:

eww, not worth it then

Quoting Anonymous:

She said id have to drive to her house..thats mainly why its such an inconvenience








Quoting Orionsgirl:

$100/week. She drops off and picks up.

I think in this situation, where you're not close with her, she expects you to go there and watch him, and she's wanting you to do this for $45/week, you were right to say no. Like you said, your a single mom so you need to make money to support your child and this would only cover the gas to get there and back.
