The Question Club
One of my neighbors approached me a couple days ago to ask if I might be around on Friday night to babysit his daughter (she's upwards of 14 months old). I happily agreed, as I'm too lazy to actually look for a legitimate job (I'm 16, so legitimate here means something in the vein of McDonalds). However, I've never taken the babysitting course at the Red Cross, and have never been left unattended with a baby for more than 15 minutes. I really want to do a good job; this neighbor said if I wanted, I could start babysitting her a lot over the summer. He also said that he'll pay very well. So, how much should I expect to be paid for babysitting for 4 hours? |
Also, anybody have any pointers? Suggestions? Horror stories from your teenage babysitting years?
