My neighbor has hinted about me watching her kindergardener after school. She is not sure of her schedule yet (new job as EMT). She said she would pay and it would only be about 45- min to an hour til her husband gets home. I am having some reservations about it--
1) kid is not a good listener, she is VERY active, not a shy quite type at all, 2) my 2nd grade son would hate it (although my 3 yr old girl would love it) 3) we bike to school (drive in winter) since no bus transportation and the last two years I have car pooled with another mom so that would be out 4) the husband is not most resonsible and I could see him making stops (grocery, dinner) on the way home because it would be easier without the kids (3yr old will be at daycare and dad would pick him up first)
We definately could use the money, but not sure it is worth it. We will have some new expenses pre-school for our 3yr old and would like to put her in dance.
Our afterschool care is about $200 a month so say $50 a week and they are open til 6p (2hrs after school)
Should I do it? What would be a fair price to charge?
