~MOD~ I REALLY want 2 start babysitting, even though im 11. My mom thinks im not responsible with kids because me and my sister fight a lot. we only fight because, well, all sisters fight. when im with other kids, they always say im their favorite. I have a mothers helper gig over the summer, but its for my aunt, (she has 2 sleep durin the day cause of her job) and I want 2 expand. Please, tell me how 2 expand my biz so i can get some $$$$!!

Hey girl, start with your mother's helper gig.  When you're 12, you'll be older and people are more likely to hire you to babysit. -lauren

what is the average age kids are potty trained?

Girls are usually earlier so maybe start at 2, and then boys up to 4. So average being 3.

hey i have a prob. i want to start babysitting this year, and so does my friend, and i i am going to take red cross babysitting courses and so is she. My sis used to be a really good sitter so she is going to help with all the ads and buisness cards but my bff wants her to help her too! i want to help but i dont want her to steal my potential costumers. We live in a neighbor hood with not alota kids and a lota sitters and i dont want to risk my chances. I know this is selfish but i really need to save my money!what should i do i want to help but on the other hand i dont! what should i do?

Hey babe, it's ok to keep some things to yourself so don't worry about that. I'm sure there are enough people to share with her though. Make a schedule that the two of you can work out together.

I babysit and i dont set an exact amount. Most 'rents are really good with paying the right amount. : ) Comment on my Profile!

At first, charge a small amount of money per hour. For one kid, maybe $2-3. If there are two, $3-4. If there are lots of kids, charge $2 a kid per hour. Most likely, you'll get tons of biz and the parents will give you a raise! Remember, DO NOT ASK FOR A RAISE! And, start small.
