I've been babysitting two little kids for a year now and I love them to death, but the youngest has a huge temper problem. He threw a brick at me the other day and sprained my foot. Something has to be done, but I don't know what. Should I ask for more money?

*****MODERATOR***** Hey! I babysat for less than an hour 4 my neighbor, and she gave me wayyyyyy MORE than i expected. I told her to just give whatever she wants cuz she's my neighbor and i didn't have a set amount to charge. my mom told me she gave me way to much and i should have offered her change. But my neighbors used to having sitters, so i don't think she was expecting change, right? she would have just had the correct amount right? thanks Smile

 

Hey girl!  Dealing with money from babysitting can be confusing sometimes.  Since you didn't tell her an amount, she probably did give you what she was comfortable with based on past sitters.  If you're not sure how much is right, you could check with other girls you know who babysit so you have an idea in mind for next time.  xoxo

MOD I babysit three kids, a 2 year old girl and 4 year old twin boys. I get paid $15 an hour. Do you think it's too much? Although I use most of the money for the coloring books, crayons, dress up chest, and other things, I wonder...

As long as you're comfortable with it and the family is comfortable with it, I'm sure it's fine.  If you're not sure, I would check with other girls you know who babysit to see what is about right.  xoxo
