2) Do you need a cheap evening or weekend babysitter? (Fargo/Moorhead)
My kids are looking for babysitting jobs. My son will be 14 in June. He has been babysitting his brothers and sister (2 1/2, 4, 5 and 10) for a long time! I run a home daycare and he has been my helper for 2 years as well. To protect everybody, he is only allowed to babysit boys at your home, but if you need a babysitter for your daughter, you are welcome to bring her to my home and he can watch her here. If you feel more comfortable, you may just bring your kids here too. He has just started babysitting a 4 year old boy as needed and you could call the mother or you could call some of my daycare parents as references. He knows how to cook well, knows how to change diapers, etc. He charges $5.00 per hour, cash only and you must pay him BEFORE leaving. If you need overnight care, you can bring your child (children) to my home and he can watch them here. We can possibly help with transportation as well. If you are drinking, we will pick him up!
My daughter is 10 and can watch boys or girls in my home only, unless you live in the Pointe West, Woodhaven or Osgood neighborhoods. She is also very responsible and good with children, but I feel she is a little young to babysit too far from the home yet. I would be here to supervise and in case of emergencies, but she would be doing the babysitting. Same rates apply.
2 siblings would be $9.00 per hour. 3 siblings would be $12.00 per hour.

7) HELP! Need advice on Parents (Waukesha)
I am a provider for a small group out of my home. I love everything about my job except for one thing and I don't know how to address it without offending anyone. I have 2-3 parents that come to pick up their child but end up staying in my home for over an hour each day. I've got other parents coming and going that I would like to chat with for a few minutes regarding their child's day. It's almost impossible when you have others sitting there listening. The worst part of them hanging around is that their child turns into a devil! Jumping on my couch, running thru the house like their ass is on fire, screaming, hitting my cat...etc....the list is endless.
Why do people feel the need to sit in my home and complain about their day, their boss, their spouses lack of sexual interest and how they don't cook. I DON'T CARE! I DON'T WANT TO CARE. I JUST WANT YOU TO GET YOUR CHILD AND GO HOME. I have my own family and things I need to do after 5:00 which has been turning into 6:00 because they don't have the common sense or courtesy to go home. Here's just a sample;
I've heard about Gramma Kate's surgery
little Jimmy's soccer practice
My friend Mary who stabbed me in the back at work
My dog has eye cancer (sorry, but shit happens)
My husband won't let me get granite counter tops
I can't believe daycare is so expensive
I ate a foot long sub today for lunch
I think I may have clogged ear drums
Do you have any Tylenol?
May I use your bathroom?
Gotta a beer?
Wow you much be raking in the cash with all the kids you got here!
Who's the new kid? How many are you gonna take. (lots, if I can get rid of you)
Ohhh that smells so good! Whatcha cooking?
And the best is for last...all while they just put out a cigarette in my driveway...how much are they a pack?? You can afford to smoke but........
Can I pay you next week cuz I broke this week. (after she told me what a fun, drunkin' weekend she had)
That is just a smidgeon of what I hear on a daily basis!
Any suggestions would be appreciated. It's got to the point where I have someone call me at 5:30 so I can pretend that I have to leave. HELP!!!

THIS is an in our home position----times and days will vary depending on your scehdule and mine, we will discuss this at your interview and make arrangements to suit us all.

I just would like to find a nice young lady that gets along with kids, who can make them laugh, enjoy herself, hang out and have a good time. I pay a daily rate instead of hourly and will go over that towards the end of this posting. My way of doing things is a little different, I don't just talk to you and say oh yeah your hired. You interview will consist of coming to our home and staying for approx 1-2 hours so that i may see you interact with the children and how the will interact with you. Sometime before your departure you and I will sit down and go over your qualifications and how you feel about the environment thus far. As I am a 27 yr old stay at home father (disabled/retired from in the line of duty accident) I am sometimes also around the house doing little odd and end type activities so if this is a problem then please move on to another ad. Occasionally you will be asked to sit overnight so that my wife and i can go out of town, This will we rare but may happen. You also may be asked to accompany me and my kids on trips during the day, such as to the park, zoo etc........ This would be paid for and would not come out of your daily rate.
We offer 30 a day and 5 an hour for anything over 8 hrs. With the exception of if we want you to do an overnight the rate is 50.00 flat.
The children are a 2 1/2 yr old little girl a 6 month old boy and a 10 yr old boy. My oldest will help out lots with the kids. There is ton of things to do from swimming out back, to playing pool downstairs.... Please respond with you resume and references if you have them and a recent photo of yourself.. Thanks and God BLess
p.s. I really am tired of interviewing and would love to find the right fit for us, i dont mind school age kids as long as you have a valid license and your parents approval.
lots of extras, :swimming, outings, pool table, lots of games,,,, movies, darts, foosball, pinball and loads of stuff to keep everone occupied
please be prepared to provide references (that can actually be contaced) first aid cpr cert if you have it and a valid license

*Response from CL reader:
21) RE: Response to Summer Nanny Wanted (South Fargo)
..... You are looking for someone to work 47.5 hours per week for a total of $125???
Thats about $2.63 PER HOUR. Isn't minimum wage in Fargo currently somewhere between $7.25 and $8 per hour?
Your proposition is beyond wrong. Insulting You will not find a good nanny for this price- perhaps there is a daycare in Fargo where an individual child could have care for something closer to your budget? Daycares are able to do that because they have several children under the care of an adult - and the adult makes a livable wage.
Original URL: * http://fargo.craigslist.org/kid/1201944965.html
22) OP's response:
Boy we have an opinionated community. If you don't like the terms I have proposed then I have a very easy solution for you.. DON'T RESPOND. The day I posted that ad the Fargo Forum had a giant news article about how high school students have a lack of summer jobs due to the economy. I'm not being misleading about my ad, I simply wanted to see if an experienced babysitter wanted to make some "easy cash". I'd rather have my daughter going to the park and pool than sitting in a daycare center all summer. Any extra curricular activites would be paid for by me. Yes, there are a lot of hours involved but you wouldn't be doing work where you have to account for every minute of your workday as you would at a job paying $7.25-$8 an hour. I don't make a huge wage where I am able to pay top dollar to a nanny that is why I put $125/week which is how much a daycare costs. This is not meant for an individual who needs to make a full-time wage to pay bills, this is meant for a high school or college student who wants to enjoy their summer before school starts while making money. I can't believe I actually have to explain this because the "respondent" couldn't figure it out on their own. Shame on you for being rude.
Original URL: http://fargo.craigslist.org/kid/1205433686.html
23) RE's response:
I stand by my original response, that $125 for 47.5 hours of work is insulting and wrong. I don't find what I said rude.
There are lots of excellent in-home daycares that are advertised on this page. I'm sure that many of them offer trips to the pool and other such activities. In home daycares still provide wonderful care. Take, for example, a stay at home parent who has his or her own young child and takes in three or four more to care for- they can charge a lower rate per hour per child than a nanny because they are able to care for multiple children/families.
"Any extra curricular activites would be paid for by me." --- Well, of course. Why would your nanny pay for the activities? Gas/car wear and tear to those activities should be paid by you, too.
"Yes, there are a lot of hours involved but you wouldn't be doing work where you have to account for every minute of your workday as you would at a job paying $7.25-$8 an hour." -- I would hope that you would want the caretaker of your child to be accountable for every waking SECOND they are with your child. Why would someone flipping burgers make so much more than the person who is in charge of your child's SAFETY?
"I don't make a huge wage where I am able to pay top dollar to a nanny that is why I put $125/week which is how much a daycare costs." -- Again, that is understandable- nannies or individual care are a luxury and not affordable for most people. I suggest you put your child in a wonderful daycare. Best of luck on your search.
