Photobucket
.... WHAT?!

1) Can babysit for $8 a day per child or LESS! 10 yrs. EXPERIENCE! References (Florida)
Can baby sit $8 a day per child or LESS! NAME YOUR PRICE! YOU PAY WHAT YOU CAN GIVE ME! WILL BABYSIT FOR LITTLE MONEY SO YOU CAN GO TO CLASSES OR WORK! CHILD CARE PROVIDER WITH OVER 10 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND GREAT REFERENCES! I have an awesome recent reference from the Mom of an 18 month old girl I did this for! I watched her much of the day providing lunch and snacks, regular diaper changes, nap time, & fun activities including reading her stories and playing barbies. I watched her for $1 an hour while her Mom went to classes to further her education. I want to do that again for someone and am available days, Monday through Friday while the kids here attend school. Among my references you can talk to the parents of 3 children (3 girls ages 5, 6 & 8) I have cared for right here in Milton. I HAVE BEEN A VERY RELIABLE TRUSTWORTHY NANNY! I was full time nanny for a family that includes a 4 year old girl and 20 mo old boy I did EVERYTHING for and I have a reference from them saying how great I was with their kids. Before that I did total care for 4 children - 2 girls ages 5 & 10 and 2 boys 8 and 11. They will also provide a reference for me! Safety is of utmost importance. Children's CPR COURSE completion! I create activities in a safe environment for all ages, and they all relate to me because I'm patient, caring, fun-loving, attentive to their needs, and very compassionate. I'm not one of those heavy drinker types, don't smoke and do not use drugs or profanity! I am a clean living trustworthy Christian man, caucasion 40+ that has lived happily with and has watched all ages of children. I get along well with everyone regardless of age, ethnicity, etc. I am a good listener and problem solver. Please reply with details of your situation and how I can help you and any questions. If you feel we have probable compatibility enought to talk to me further I will be happy to forward through email past references and arrange for you to talk to the family in Milton with the 3 girls.

5) Don't Hire Teresa De jesus G****!!!! (MD/VA/DC)
Hello CL Friends:
We recently was referred by a friend a nanny by the name of Teresa De Jesus G****. Since a friend from the church referred her to us we did a background check and hired because all came back well. To make a long story short, everything was great and we hired her. We first allowed her to stay with us three weeks earlier then the planned start date. Teresa called our family crying and stating that she needed a place to stay, because the old family she worked for was leaving the state. However, the old family were really friends of hers that lied for her; we found this out after doing more research. She also lied and stated she was CPR certified for infants. We found out, because when we ask to see her certification she confessed to not having it. After about three months of things going okay we noticed Teresa acting funny as if she was on drugs. My wife and I got concerned and started probing for answers. She gave us excuses of her son being homeless on drugs and all kind of statements that did not make sense. The last straw for us was when she did not show up for work knowing she was suppose to be with my wife, because we were expecting our new baby a any time. Teresa left us a note around 6am that morning stating she had an emergency. Her emergency turned out to be her working another job for a cleaning company. She left my wife at home with a two year old on the day she was suppose to go into labor. I did not know, because I leave for work at 5am, and the letter was posted to a chair in the living room. To make this whole story worse, checks, credit cards, a video cam and money were stolen from our house. We now have to hire an attorney that will cost us about $3000.00 to assure us our identities will be protected going forward. In addition, we also found out that she is in the country illegal and the driver license is a fake. Needless to say, this has turned out to be a lesson learned the hard way. This will cost us over $5000 in items stolen and getting an attorney to right the wrong. Please pass on this information to anyone that you know is looking for a nanny. Please she Teresa's fake information listed below.

MD Driver License
Teresa De jesus G****
1906 Amherst Rd Apt ***
Hyattsville, MD 20783

In addition, all of her references are bogus and from her church.

I am a full time college student with a 2 year old child. Christmas is coming up and I want my child to have a good Christmas. I dont want money.

Anytime after school I am free. I just want my son to have a good Christmas yet to know that I am working for it. Free anytime on the weekends. Bring a 10 dollar toy will watch em for 4 hrs. Anymore just get a 20 toy and I ll watch your child longer. My son has his own room. There is a playroom that I am going to start working on. And an extra furnished room. I keep the house clean.

12) RE: Reliable daycare were a kid can be a kid
I'm just saying to everyone out there who posts on here. If you want business and people to send their children to your daycare facility, perhaps you might want to learn how to spell first OR proof read your ad.
PLEASE tell me parents, would you really allow your child to spend a day with someone who doesn't even care enough to at least appear educated?
And we wonder why our youth fails. Some of the most important education is early chilhood.

15) RE: REALLY need a day time baby sitter (Florida)
"I am not happy about looking for someone on Craigslist." Okay, so then why are you looking for someone on Craigslist?!?!

"I am willing to pay $7-$8 an hour depending on experience and how I feel about you." 7 bucks for 2 small kids for 2 hours but we have to meet you first unpaid? so drive to your house to meet? then home? then to your house to babysit? then home again? plus watch your kids. for 14 bucks?!? thats gas ALONE!!

"*No children of your own that you will have to bring. My husband will not want other kids tearing up the house." Because other kids will tear up the house??? OKAYYYYYYYYYYY. I don't know what kind of kids you have, but mine would never tear up a house, not even their own.. hah.

"so if you are NOT the right person for the job and you know it, dont waste either of our time please!" DONT WASTE OUR TIME POSTING POST LIKE THIS. RUDE. No wonder all your sitters cancelled on you!!!

"If you do, YOUR life if on the line! " YOURE CRAZY!!!!!!!!

"I know I sound like a total FREAK here" YES YOU DO !!!!!!!

"but I LOVE my kids and I dont want anything to happen to them!" because being a jerk on Craigslist is going to make any decent person want to work with you....uh nooo. Maybe if start being NICE you;d have MORE luck in people wanting to babysit for you!!!

So stop acting liek you are high and mighty and treat people with respect. You act like sitters on Craigslist are evil and out to get you. Get over yourself. I bet you even attend church on Sunday and call yourself a Christian, huh??? Because Jesus would act the way youre acting? NOPE.
When you show kindness to people, they will show it back. When you want help but freak out before you even hire anyone... then who would really want to work for A SHARK. unless they are a timid tuna who is scared of you. I bet you have no friends. No life. Please DElete your ad!!!!!!!!!!

16) RE: REALLY need a day time baby sitter (Florida)
I can understand and admire your concern and care for your children, but how dare you author a posting that tells someone "their life is on the line" for anything. While I have zero tolerance for ANYONE who would harm a child in ANY way, it is not wise for you to put such a comment on a public site. I am no expert on the law, but I am sure if they wanted, someone could have you in a heap of trouble for making that type of comment. I, for one, would not trust anyone other than my direct family to watch any of my children, and I certainly wouldn't put such a threatening remark in a post if I were so desperate for child care. You should rethink your wording hun - it's not wise.

I know this will be flagged. This isn't the place for my posting. However, there are some things said that are too difficult to ignore.

17) Nanny Pay (Milwaukee)
It is driving me crazy to see so many posts for nanny positions by parents who think that nannies make so little! $4/hr for two toddlers?? That is not a NANNY that is a babysitter. You will not find any qualified nanny who will work for less than $10 per hour. That is the going rate today. For experienced nannies, the rate is anywhere from $10-$18 per hour! Please stop posting these ridiculous ads! $4 per hour is what I made on a Saturday night babysitting when I was 12 years old! If you are willing to pay so little for your nanny, then you will find someone who is inexperienced. Please get with it and offer a decent rate for your nanny positions.

18) Babysitter needed for Friday October 23rd (Chicago)
Hello. I realize that this is last minute, but I'm looking for a baby sitter for tommrow night, friday October 23rd. I have a well behaved 3 year old boy. He's completely potty trained and good with all types of animals.
I'd ideally like to have him at your home this time. You would need to have prior experience with taking care of children at this age. CPR and First Aid experience is a plus. You'd also need to live in a smoke free home. Keep in mind that we have cats so if even being around a cat person causes problems, this won't be for you. Responsible teenagers would be considered, but regardless of age, references requested. I don't have a ton of money to spend, so if you are looking at getting over $10 an hour, please don't reply.
If available and interested, please email me with more information about you, how much you would charge, etc. Keep in mind that I live in Willowbrook and I'd prefer NOT to travel too far from home. Thanks in advance!

.... HOW MUCH?!

19) Live in Nanny Needed (Los Angeles)
Our Nanny is leaving and I am in immediate need for a replacement. I am a single Dad with a 13 year old son who's mother is alive (DA) but I have full custody. My wife (of many years) lives 4 blocks away and she is NOT the mother of my boy therefore she has nothing to due with raising him. I travel often for 1 to 3week periods, as I am a Director in the Adult Film Industry. I will provide a room with separate entry in our 3 bedroom apartment. You share a full size bathroom with the boy (and his friends on the weekend). I require driving and picking up from school, not daily but often on a moments notice, sports car pooling, preparing meals for the boy (i.e. breakfast on weekends, snacks after school and evening). I have a maid come weekly, however you are required to maintain daily dishes, garbage, pick up after teen, and due your own laundry, (paid on premises) including the bathroom towels. Weekends are spent with Wife so you need be available. I am home often writing during the day. I will supply transportation and you must have a good driving record. You pay for your own food, gas, unless I am out of town then I cover. Basically I am offering you a room with large TV, closet, and Futon Bed and use of a 1995 SUV in exchange for childcare. Our former Nanny worked as the boy is in school during the day and I am home most every evening except weekends. Please send me your email, a note or resume about yourself, a picture may move things along, and please make sure you have the strength, discipline, and time to nurture my son who is very tall and big for his age.

20) Need PT childcare ASAP (Unknown)
I have a 2 month old daughter that I need childcare for. I'm a Legal Assistant going back to work part-time. I will need someone Mondays, Wednesdays and sometimes Fridays from 7:30-3:30 (possibly 3:00). My schedule may require me to work Tuesdays or Thursdays last minute, so I need someone that can come with a days notice. This week I just need someone Wednesday, but the following weeks will be consistent. I would like someone CPR certified with substantial prior experience with kids and infants. She sleeps pretty much all day but there is an hour or two a day that she wakes up (besides regular eating times) that she likes to sit up and look around and be talked to. She's a great baby and cries very rarely, pretty much only when she's hungry or she has gas. I'm paranoid about her getting sick so I do not want someone that has another job that requires them to be around a lot of people. I would prefer someone with their flu shot or willing to get one so nothing gets passed on to her. Like I said, I'm paranoid, but I have a reason to be. This flu season is already crazy! Please e-mail me with your resume/qualifications. We are looking to pay around $20-$30/day. References are required; please no family references, work only. People with no CPR or childcare experience will not be considered. Thanks!

21) RE: Need PT childcare ASAP
So many demands for such little pay. Good luck finding even a SAHM! By the way, my 16 yr driving cousin in HS makes $10/hr for 1 child and doesn't even do anything as the baby is asleep the WHOLE night. Nannies are paid $12-20/hr for 1 child as they have the exp and edu plus older than 18. For $3.75 you will get a lady that speaks little to no English, flu shot what a joke. I haven't gotten one and won't. You want a slave, can't work another job due to germs, um hello you can't shelter your baby forever. I agree with everyone else and to add on top I would not be willing to get the flu shot just because your afraid of your baby getting sick. I have never gotten the flu shot in my life, neither have my children, and we have never gotten the flu. I bet your not gonna pay for it, you probably wont pay for someone to be out sick from it either. Most people I know personally get sick from the shot. I charge $15 an hour for an infant. What your offering is not even minimum wage. Your gonna get maybe a high school student. I have more than plenty of experience of what your looking for and would never be your provider. My last provider was paid $150 a week to watch my daughter who was 13 months for 3 days a week 4 hours a day. Plus she was able to bring her own children so she didnt have to worry about paying childcare for them.

22) RE: Need PT childcare ASAP
I'm sorry but I just find it absolutely mind blowing that parents want someone who is highly qualified including CPR training and years of childcare experience (not to mention willing to follow specific rules, like getting a flu shot and being available with only a days notice, etc.) but yet are not willing to pay that person what they are worth. I'm sorry but I would NEVER take on the responsibility not to mention liability of caring for another persons child/ren for only $3.75 an hour. That is crazy. Times are tough but if you can't afford a nanny then find a babysitter or a daycare but don't expect the world of them and do not expect them to be available last minute. We all need to make a living.

26) RE: I need a Nanny
Are people out there delirious to think that someone who is qualified, loving, educated, and has a clean background is going to watch 2 toddlers IN their house for almost full time PLUS cleaning for 180$ a week? That comes to $5.80 an hour.... less than someone could make working at McDonalds. You are looking to hire a babysitter... maybe a drop out high schooler at best for that pay..... NOT a nanny! Good luck......

We can not afford that and I refuse to pay that for someone to sit and eat my food and watch my tv while my kids sleep!!! most of the time we pay 20.00 per sitting.The hours for the 30th would be 9pm until around 1pm. Thank you.

29) Live in Nanny needed (Minneapolis)
THIS IS A NON-PAID POSITION.

Hello. I'm looking for a new live-in nanny/gramma/grammpa. This is a long term commitment of at least a year or more. I have two children ages 2 & 5. You will receive FREE room & board in exchange for watching the kids while I'm at work. Some evenings and weekends will be needed. NO COUCH POTATOES ALLOWED!!! I need someone who will play with the kids, feed them breakfast and lunch, take them to the park, walks, zoo, science musuem, teach them letter and numbers, play games, sing to them, etc. TV for about an hour (give or take) is fine since I know a movie takes longer then an hour. Light house keeping, preparing meals, and some laundry will be helpful if at all possible.

My current live-in nanny needs/has decided to pursue other options for personal reasons. Single parents are welcome to apply since playmates are always nice to have around. I have no problem trading off childcare and splitting the bills three ways since my boyfriend and his two boys live here too. (This is for my kids only).

Serious inquiries ONLY! No drugs or drunks allowed. Drinking is fine on your time as long as your muture enough to handle it and not hung over or still drunk while watching my kids. No smoking in the house at any time, outside only. Prefer non-smoker since I'm trying to quit myself, but I'm not picky at this time. Maybe we can quit together. On bus line. My cell rings 24/7 so don't be afraid to call. Great for someone who wants to go to school or work at night. Kristi 612.432.****

34) CHEAP*VERY CHEAP*NOT EXPENSIVE AT ALL*AFFORDABLE*(REALLY) (Chicago)
Hello,
I am single mom of a toddler looking for any kind of work. Currently I am a waitress on weekend nights as a on call position for catering business, but not sure if will get any work this weekend, also taking care of another toddler from my home, but these hours are completely flexible, because these girl's mom knows that I am looking for work so at any moment my availability may change.

So I could babysit your child at my house, I have lots of toys here, but mind you it is basement apartment. Currently I am doing it for $3/hr, because my plan was to have 2 or 3 children like that for a full time, so in the end it would be sufficient amount to cover my living expenses. But now I know that with my apartment being basement apartment it is not that easy to gather 3 full time child care situations, so now I have no choice but to ask for $25 a day minimum. Will send pictures of my apartment upon request.

Could do it at your house as well, in that case - $5/hr and only if I can bring my child with me. And because a few people have actually asked me if I can come to babysit for the same $3/hr, I feel the need to explain that the reason why I ask for only $3 when it is from my home, is because like I said earlier that by doing it from my home I could get couple more kids at the same time so in the end it would not be $3/hr total. While when working from your house of course it would be my only income during these hours.

Also in the past I have done a lot of residential cleaning, have years and years of experience, used in fact to have my own cleaning agency, but at this time I am in such a situation that just can't invest any time and any money into developing business again. My prices would start from $35 per place. Of course, as bigger a house or apartment, as more work it would take, so as more would I have to charge, but I think that my starting price gives you an idea how low my prices would be. Still much more than I ask for babysitting, that's right, that is because for that kind of work I would have to leave my child for someone else to babysit and to pay that person for it.

And, like I said before, I am also looking for any other possible kind of work. So will have to tell a little bit about myself now. High school diploma, non-smoker, legally authorized to work in the US (and have lived here for 12 years, and eligible for actual citizenship already since 7 years ago), experienced as a real estate agent (but would not go for any commission based work at this time), as a waitress, as a owner/manager of residential cleaning agency, as a housekeeper, as a food delivery driver (but at this time I have no driver license due to only one ticket that is unpaid for very long time and that I have no money to pay at this time, but never had anything else wrong in my past besides this unpaid ticket, and will be more than happy to take background check as long as you would not ask me to pay for it upfront from my pocket, because i simply have no money), besides English I also speak, read and wright Polish, Russian and Lithuanian, very good typing skills, computer literacy is up to the level that have had created few websites on my own for my businesses, was good in marketing but unfortunately not a closer so of course don't have much interest in any sales positions.

Interested in almost any possible kind of work, just have to ask for different pay amounts depending on what kind of work would it be. (My ultimate position would actually be official position in some company that pay by check and that has regular day time hours, but would actually prefer something even totally opposite if it would be immediate cash that means starting tomorrow).

NOT interested in any business opportunities, any commission based work, any volunteer work that is based on future benefits.

Thank you so much for reading
