if it suits you to mind the child in his home and your happy with 50 a day well then your not underpaid . If your there and the child is having a nap and your having to make dinner for him i wouldn´t see any prob throwing on a bit more for the parents too..
If Your no longer happy minding in their home for this rate then you really need to have a chat with them .You wont have the prob of cooking dinner for them if you mind the child in your home ...
better to have a chat than let it fester ..
good luck

mindermum is right .how long are you working for the family ?
maybe if its nearing a year you could ask for a pay review.
do you have to pay bus fare you could ask they pay that per day
this would up your money a bit .its about not losing your job.
some minders will work for 1euro per hour.
your countychildcare run courses for childminders your get a cert and lots of
good info also your get to chat with other minders .
good luck

No, you are not being paid enough. The going rate is 5.00 ph, which is not really enough anyway, but thats only in your own home,(minders home), you are not being paid enough to look after child in his own home, I think that should be minimum wage, and they should be looking after your prsi etc. You are not being paid for being a cook either, go back and have a word with them, I think they may be exploiting you.
