Your Questions About Baby Care

How to find babysitting jobs & how much to charge?

I’m 20 and a nursing student, and I’d love to start babysitting again – long story short, I loved it when I was little and it’d be great with my current schedule. So, question: when I was 12 I only charged $3 but it seems I should be able to charge a little more now, right? And more importantly how do I find jobs? Other than asking my friends who have kids, which I’ve already started doing. Thanks!

The Expert answers:

About 5 to 7 dollars per hour is a good sure that you are cpr and first aid certified. Be sure to know if the kids have special needs like medical conditions and can either post your ad here or look for possible jobs. Just google ownadaycare on the net

Andthere really isnt many neighbor hoods..
I am CPR trained and I took a babysitting class.

The Expert answers:

Check out local churches, YMCA or gyms. Take some free classes from your local Red Cross and get certified in CPR and first aid. Once you have these certifications, you can put them on your application. When the people who attend these facilities and their functions know you are honest and trustworthy, then you can rely on word of mouth.
