View Full Version : Is anyone doing mainly babysitting?

I am pre reg and parents are booking me up, I'm finding babysitting is quite a good earner (making £80- 100 a week at £8 an hour with £24 minimum fee plus fuel and time taken driving) and wondered of other people use it as a nice booster? There is no paperwork needed of course and at least half the time the kids are asleep so it dead easy and there's no clearing up either...

I know it wouldn't appeal to young parent but my kids are grown/or out all the time and I actually prefer doing something than watching TV trying to resist my fridge...altho it is quite ahdr to resist their fridges...I take my own food and drink now.

When I get booked up in the day I expect it'll be less enticing but at £8 an hour its equivalent to 2+ little ones in the day time.
