Babysitting all summer question?

I’m 15 andthinking about babysitting my neighbor’s kids all summer. It will be from 8am until 5pm on week days. I am not sure of their ages, but I will guess between 6 and 10. There are 3 of them. (I know the kids, I just never asked their ages before)

Do you think it will be unreasonable to ask to babysit at their house? Our house is too small and my mom is expecting a baby, and she said only if its at their house.

I will talk to my neighbor tomorrow. But I’m nervous.

What about pricing? Is $5 an hour too much?

  • $5 hr is too little if anything. I’ve been babysitting since I was 13 at $10 an hour and no one cares about that because that’s what they expect


  • If your doing it fulltime for them they will probably set a weekly rate, not hourly. You can’t expect someone making say 8 an hour to decide to give you 5 an hour. That’s 225 a week if your M-F 8-5. So just ask them what they are willing to pay and go from there. You might be surprised but don’t get your hopes set because babysitting is a sought after job and many ppl will accept less money to watch all 3 just for the experience and extra income.

  • Most babysitter expect you to babysit at their house. Ask them what they would pay you and if you think it is too low say $5 an hour. I get payed that much for three kids that are between 1-7.

    my year old have a fever of .?

    Answers Favorite AnswerDon't be too alarmed. He's not going to have a "fit" as the other answer suggested. Babies get higher fevers than adults do. . is considered a mild to moderate fever. If your other child had the virus, then it's very likely that the baby has it too. You can use pedialyte or any electrolyte solution to keep the baby from getting dehydrated. Try putting some in a medicine dropper and giving it every minutes when he's awake. Infant tylenol will help with the fever and any pain he's in. Call your doctor for the correct dosage. Usually if the baby is weaned, you should stay away from milk for a day or two. If he's breastfed, you can usually continue as normal. Dry snacks and bananas can help with diarrhea if that happens. If he still has a fever on Tylenol or it lasts more than a day or two I'd take him to the doctor.Source(s): Mommy to year old. isn't a fever. It doesn't even warrant medication.

    What else can I do to help her?

    Answers Favorite Answer*Dairy can actually 'plug up' a child more. So if she has a lot of yogurt or cheese frequently,I'd cut some of that out of her diet for now. Other than that. Increase the amount of FRUIT you're giving her. There is far more fiber in the flesh and peel of fruits than in juice. Juice in all honesty is flavored sugar water with vitamin c. That is unless you fresh squeeze all of the juice you give her. And that is not the easiest for most of us who are busy! Soft fruits high in Fiber :-Apples-Avocado-Bananas (this one surprises most people)-Berries ; strawberries,raspberries,blueberries etc-Dried fruits ; Figs, Raisins, Apricots, Dates, etc.-Oranges-Pears-Prunes (actually at the bottom of the 'highest fiber fruits' list)yes more liquids, try a small amount of prune juice, please skip suppositories, any un-needed medications are not good for young children / babies, they can cause harm in the long run. Does baby go daily? Also what foods you are feeding be sure they are age appropriate!Have you ever spoken to a pediatric gastroenterologist about it?I have a feeling you may be giving too much juice.prun juice helps and massaging her belly with baby oil Read more
