I wouldn't do it personally as its at their house I would never get time to relax and spend time with LO.

I would charge a premium for it if I was you.

Same here nor would I.

It does depend on your situation - but out every evening 7 days a week! It wouldn't be easy if you have children of your own too, but that depends on whether you have care for them whilst you are out. Definitely have to be at higher rates for working those unsociable hours!

ooh wouldn't do it either i'm afraid!
If its was just a couple of nights maybe but i couldn't stay up till gone 11 every night! i like my bed too much! lol
If you are going to do it i would charge them full wack, at least double your usual hourly rate!

if i did that it would work out about 3500 per month!! so much!!

maybe not that much then! lol. If they are prepared to pay that then i'll do it! lol.
I don't know really you need to think of a figure that will make it worth your while but also that they are prepared to pay. Its funny hours what do the parents do?

care worker i think, on weekends they would stay at ours, quite up for having them so would be good if she liked us!
just have to think of good price don't really want to go any less than £4 per child per hr!

that sounds a fair price!
