3) Still looking for a sitter (Hampton Roads)
Hello I am a mother of a 2 1/2 yr old little boy and I am currently looking for a sitter/nanny. I'm not sure how much a nanny cost but I do know its probably more than I can afford. My son is already in daycare I just need someone for those errands I need to run, going shopping, getting nails done hair appts working out and mustering for duty on weekends in the morning. I prefer someone who can come to my house so that I wont have to take him out of his comfort zone. I dont necessary need the person to be older but please be wise and patience due to the fact he is a boy and very playful! I would perfer someone who is a non-smoker and has a open schedule like a high school student or someone just graduating. I would also prefer someone who has some kind of experience with children and love children and not doing this just because they want to find some other way to make money. Even though that is a good reason I dont believe that most people will do their job to the best if they are doing it only for money. If this is something you can help me out with then please email me with rates and availability. Thanks

Oh.. Been there done that! Parents will lie, and are very decieving. In my 6 years of nannying, I've came across lots of crazy families. I worked for one family about 3 years ago for a total of ONE week. Their kid threw things at me, slapped me, and would get out the car door and run before I had a chance to get his smaller brother out of the car first. I suggested to the mother to get a harness/backpack type thing with a leash so that I could hold onto him and he not get hit by traffic, and to speak to him about his hitting and throwing objects.. and she fired me over it. YEAH, FIRED ME. I worked for another family who always texted me... yeah TEXTED ME about not coming into work the next day cuz they were taking a day off, etc, when I texted them back..(cuz they TEXTED ME), I told them to not text me the night before at 9pm, they got angry and fired me. YEEEEEP. So, its okay for them to text me about saying they dont need me, but I can't respond to their txts via texts, and I can't text them if I'm not going to work. apparently I have to CALL. HYPOCRITICAL? yeah. Another family I had worked for as an occasional babysitter for 4 years was always really nice to me.. until... I was keeping their kids one night and the lady was supposed to be home at 11pm, she called me at 10:45 and asked if it was okay if she could stay out til later around 1 or 2am.. and I said no, I had to be at my normal job at 6am the next morning. She got mad and replied with "oh, do I need to find another sitter from now on then?".... WTF!!!! I went on an interview last year for a lady who had triplets, they were all under 1yr old if I remember correctly... I told her $14 an hour through email, and she agreed to that rate... I drove literally an hour for the interview, got there.. and she offered me $8 an hour.. are you kidding me???? If you aren't willing to pay our rates, then do not bother interviewing us. We are not slaves, if you cannot afford the going rate for childcare, STOP HAVING KIDS!!! I could say lots more.. my nanny career has been dramatic, unstable and down right crappy. There is only ONE family that I have worked for that I would consider NORMAL, and wouldn't backstab me.. and that is pretty sad. Quite frankly, I am sick of being a nanny. Parents will fire you over the stupidest crap, and they demand to get their way, or you will suffer the 'concequences.'

19) Mother's/Father's Helper (Madison/Windsor)
Sorry for the confusion on location. We are currently in west Madison, but hope to be moving to Windsor/Sun Prairie/DeForest soon. We are looking for a high school or college student to give us a much needed hand for a while. We recently added two babies to our home (twin girls born 3.1.09), and are already busy with a 21-month-old little boy. We are mostly looking for someone to come to our home and lend a hand during the 6-8 p.m. hours. You could be playing with and getting dinner for our son, or you could be cuddling one or two babies while we do the other work. We would also love someone who would be willing to do some light housekeeping duties... throw in a load or two of laundry, vacuum... It's mostly to help us through the dinner/bed-time hours, but it may be more or less. You can probably plan to help every third weekend once Mom goes back to work! We need to experiment and see what works best for us. We may also ask you (or you and a friend) to baby-sit occasionally so we can get out of the house. Because we are going to be home 99% of the time, we aren't looking to pay much. The more help you give, the more you will earn. Our "plan" is to pay ~$10-50/week depending on the hours you are here, and the work done. Let us know if you are interested and feel free to ask questions!

20) Summer Babysitter Needed (Pittsburg/Antioch)
I am looking for a babysitter to watch two boys 9 and 11. They pretty much entertain themselves, and am looking for someone to go on bike rides with them, water park, movies, etc to which we will pay for you to go. We will also give you gas money and or bart tickets (bart is fun for them). We can pay you $300 every 2 weeks which is $600 a month. You would arrive at the house around 6am and can sleep until the boys wake up, just monitor their breaksfast and hang out. Take them outside to the park or whereever you want to go. You can bring a friend to the house to hang with you, as long as you make sure the boys are safe. We usually get home between 5pm and 6pm, some days earlier, some days we won't need you, but you'll still be compensated the same. Ideally looking for high school student or college student with a car and valid drivers license. This is a great opportunity to make some money and do whatever it is you want to do for the summer, as long as the boys are taken care of and not sitting in front of the tv all day. We plan to possibly put them in rec classes so you could have a hour to two hour break during the day to do whatever you need, but we are not sure yet. Thanks, Lisa

24) Daytime Nanny/Babysitter needed ASAP for 5 hours daily (Winthrop)
Me and my soon to be wife both work from home, we have a nice 2 bedroom apartment overlooking the ocean on Winthrop point. We have a beautiful little newborn baby girl that we need someone to help us take care of during the day. We do not want to put her in daycare, and enjoy her being with us all day, but things get hectic when both my fiance and I are on important business calls, so we need an extra hand. We will both be present to help occasionally throughout the day. Perfect scenerio would be for someone to come over either from 10-3 daily m-f or 11-4 same days. We would like the person to watch the baby and help to tidy the house if she is sleeping here and there: dishes, vacuum, laundry. We can afford $45 dollars a day cash. I also run a business and often look for people looking to make side cash on various projects, so there is also oppurtunity there.

29) RE: In need of childcare (fantasy land)
I have never given my two cents on anyone's ad before but this has to be said. A 17 month old from 5:30 am til almost 5 pm Monday thru Friday and 125.00 every other week. Sweetie thats about .96 cents an hour. Plus to come to your home that's gas money out of the persons pocket. How about try and take her to a providers home and you could then maybe get away with paying something more close to that. But don't hold your breath. GOOD child care is not cheap. And that way your little one wouldn't have to play by herself she could have some interaction with kids her own age. Good luck to you..
Original URL: http://norfolk.craigslist.org/kid/1118360848.html

30) RE: RE: In need of childcare
You know, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. Forget the 96 cents an hour thing-if you were taking her to an in-home daycare, you could get away with that. But to expect someone to work mon-fri, 12 hours a day, for around $60 bucks a week. And don't even use the excuse "for a college student" because with a schedule like that, you wouldn't be able to take any classes, or find another job to supplement income. I'm so sick and tired of seeing parents who have all these expectations and then lowball providers and sitters, like it's not a hard job. What's more insulting, is that you want to pay somebody peanuts-because that $60 is gas money-and then they don't even have the time to go out and find something that will actually pay them enough to eat along with being able to drive out to you. God help some of you get some common sense, because this nonsense is ridiculous.
