TQC, when I first started babysitting for this family, they just had one kid and they paid me $10/hr. Normally I wouldn't charge that much, but the kid is totally a handful so it's well earned. Now, they have custody of three other kids, who are all 10+. The kids are equally a handful (bad language, bad attitudes, constantly picking at one another, etc) but at least they don't require diaper changes. The only thing is, they still pay me $10/hr. That is not cool by me, but they still ask me to babysit (though I haven't been available the past few times).

long story short, how do I tell them tactfully that $10/hr is not enough for four kids?
