Thanks, I´ve alot less money than the family in question so no chance I would do it for free lol
And I´ve kids of my own so no way would I do it for free either . I think your right about family being tricky but I´ve had no problems as such yet but am just concerned about the cost .

Hi guys , I´m looking after a family members 3 kids after school(first year done) so it´s ,an hour in the morning with their breakfast then 4 hours in afternoon with snacks and dinner .im obviously very flexible which I don´t mind helping them out if late etc ,we are a very close family,but I still want to be payed correctly ,the family are financially fine it´s me who´s poor haha:) and as much as I care for the kids and treat them very fairly and do the homework with out fault ,they´ve all excelled this year they are quite a handful and hard work but I´m well up for it . I just feel if I´m not paid enough the novelty will wear off. I won´t mention what I´m paid for now just to see the comparisons:) I work 3/4 days a week.

its tricky when it comes to family some say dont do it for family as it can cause problems.but if things are sorted out from the start there shouldent be any problems.i dont know the rates up your way but i would say ask for 10 euro an hour.see how that goes.i know a lot of people who try and rope in family to mind .cos they thought they were going to get it for nothing.
