    What a cheek,you are not a flipping taxi service!!!

    I am a bit in shock, some people never cease to amaze do they!!!!

    Just tel them no way, you are a childminder, you have your own children aswell as your own family to think of and other minded children.

    I cant quite believe it!!!

    I agree completely with what Lou said. What do they think you are? There's no way I would be doing that either.

    I agree with what the others have said, but it would also limit you to the numbers of mindees you have to the spaces you have in your car, if you have all got to get in the car to take one child home, this might not be a problem now but it maybe in the future if someone has the need for early evening childcare.

    What a rip take - definitely wouldn't do it.

    Put your family first and tell them straight is my advice.

    Can't believe it Sar, how cheeky to expect you to do all this for them. It's not fair on you at all.
    Don't worry if she is Bossy, don't take no problems from her as it is your business and if she doesn't like it, that is up to her.
