So i officially started to babysit today for someone who is NOT family…I say that not in an offensive way but because my babysitting experience is from children who are family or family friends. I’ve never charged to sit for them because it was more as a favor plus they’re family. If they did pay me it was at their own disgretion<–sp? the amount too.
So here’s my thing… I didn’t get a chance to discuss with the childs parent how and when they need to pay me, just how much (it’s weekly, full time, unlimited sitting houre, flat rate). So when they arrived this morning to drop off i talked it over with them. I told them I prefer that they pay in advance and in cash… They seemed fine with it…but even though they were ok with it i feel all weird… is it OK or NOT OK for me to have asked to be paid like that???
Opinions good and bad welcome but now “serious” bashing though :teehee:
