-----------------------------------
I am just wondering what others opinions are on this. I have been asked to mind a baby in December as the mother is returning to work in January. However he has been making strange with extended family members so she has asked me to take him an hour or so every week starting from now at a time that suits us both. Tonight i got the feeling that she was hoping i wouldnt charge her for this but i feel i should get paid as i have to give him full attention and i am also minding 2 after schoolers at the same time

I do initial meet up and then hr and a half free and then 3hrs for €10, all fairly close to each other...anything after that is paid...I´d charge €5 an hr.
Start as you mean to go on...nobody should expect any service for free unless free is advertised...

hi there
i agree its a good idea that you get used to each other but a month before free should be enough.i would expect to be paid if starting now as its only september
