It has just expired; I am retaking the next available class. I love children and animals. I am not the nanny that neglects the baby or kids all day while I'm on the phone or texting all day while they sit in front of the t.v.. I have experience with newborns-15 years old. I have tons of references. I do not mind going outside, to parks, on walks, or to the pool. Children have always brought me joy and I love being around them. I do not have a problem with nanny cams because I have nothing to hide. I graduate in a month from Coastal Christian Academy. I do not have a set schedule so I am available anytime! I usually have my own ride and I am always on time. I come to you! I can promise your child(ren) will be in good hands with me. My rates vary; depending on the amount of children, ages, and hours. They are negotiable. I would need to bring my son along he is 9 months. Please shoot me an email for more information or if you would like to set up an interview!

I need some one that's ok with getting paid when I get paid. The 1st time will be september 14th. After that it will be on the 1st of every month for the next 17months. I'm not willing to pay more than 400 per month. I really want to finish school. I'm a single mother just trying to do everything possible to provide the best for my children. I know there has to be someone out there that doesn't want to charge me an arm and a leg for watching some kids for a few hours. My kids are very well behaved for there ages. If you're interested please email me. I will reply the same day. If you're not comfortable with monthly pay I can do bi weekly. I do not pay in advance because I've been played quite a few times. I hope that is understandable. Thanks

hmm said...

Am I missing something with 2 and 3? They seem fine. $480 for a weekend, and a person trying to get a job... sounds like to me.

huh said...

Yeah why is number 3 on here? Just a young mom looking for an income...nothing wrong with that. Sad someone felt the need to expose her here.

katydid said...

1. Pay is not optionale. I'm actually becoming angry at the increase in adds expecting free childcare.

2. If you need a job yes, but $10/hr for 3 young kids & household chores on top of that is on the low end. If you're concerned with legal pay and overtime this job isn't in compliance with that 48 hours is 48 hours. I love how she tries to sneak in the 3rd kid, the hours of employment the 2 year old would not be in school.

3. Comes across as unprofessional and I feel for she's a teengager with few options trying to find an income for herself and her baby.

How does a 16 year old credfit herself with caring for 15 year old?
4. Should at the least offer MINIMUM WAGE!
5. I give up with the pay issue!.

RaleighWorld said...

3... is 16 with a 9 month old and goes to a Christian school?

See this is what happens when you shelter kids, they go wild with curiosity and boom- pregnant at 15.

Zarine said...

RaleighWorld - Unexpected pregnancy can happen to anyone, religious or not. Doesn't make her a hypocrite when everyone else is having relationships outside of marriage but not the pregnancy, kwim?

Why ever would the first family not pay and think they would have tons of offers???

hmm said...

I honestly think #1 doesn't mean no pay. Ir's a button on Craigslist, not text in the ad. Could've been a slipup.

MissMannah said...

What the heck is a stay-out nanny? If it is a job without pay, I don't think I want to know.

#3 is ridiculous. There's no way I would hire a 16 year old with a 9mo baby to take care of my kids. She had to have gotten pregnant when she was 14! And yes, her going to a Christian school has a lot to do with it because they preach abstinence and no other birth control. Perfect example of why this does not work. (I also LOL'ed when I saw she has experience babysitting 15 year olds!)

#2 I was confused about because she mentioned her 2yo will start Montessori school, which implies the nanny won't care for her. But the job is weekends only, so nanny will obviously have all 3 kids. For $10/hr plus housework? No thanks.

#4 needs to go to a daycare with assistance if all she can afford is $400/month.

Susannah said...

1. I'm going to assume there was some sort of typo and they don't actually mean no pay.

2. Love how Mom is trying to be sneaky with the number of kids being cared for. 3 little kids and chores for $10 is too much unless you are desperate.

3. I really want to know how she has experience caring for a 15 year old. I understand her options are limited, but I wouldn't feel comfortable hiring a 16 year old. She should look into being a daycare aide, some states allow 16 year olds to work part time as aides, and she might get a spot for her son as well.
4. Why does she insist on a nanny? The hours she wants and a budget are perfect for daycare, she could probably find an excellent home daycare with great rations for even less than $400/month
5.Needs a reality check, and to open up the wallet some more.

bella said...

Just the fact the 16yo CALLS herself a nanny is troubling enough! With TONS of experience, no less! AND up to 15yo! Wow! I want to hire her! NOT!

Rhiannon said...

I emailed the people in #1 to ask if it was a mistake. I haven't heard anything back yet. I'll let you all know if I do.

♥ Amy Darling ♥ said...

I agree that number one is probably a mistake. They probably clicked the NO PAY option button by mistake.

A 16 yr old teen mother would not make a great nanny. She is too young and inexperienced at this stage in her life. Perhaps occasional babysitting would be a good place to start.

OceanBlue said...

CL-wtf! I've missed you!

I actually came across a few that I considered submitting.

Sure did said...

Lost interest by #2.

wow said...

What an ignorant comment.

hmmm said...

What does going to a Christian school have to do with getting pregnant at 15? Why are you ASSuming she was sheltered, based on where she goes to school? I went to a private Catholic high school & I was pregnant at 14 & then again at 18. My school NEVER preached abstinence. That's just a myth. My mom actually drove me to get birth control. How was I sheltered? Why would you think everyone @ a Christian school is sheltered?

hmmm said...

They do? My Catholic school didn't preach it.

Proud said...

#3 A mother graduating @ age 16. Good for her. And already looking for work. Id be proud if she were my child. So many 16 year olds have had their first child dismembered & sucked through a tube.

ugh said...

#4 can't afford a nanny obviously so why is she looking for one? Is she too lazy to pack her children up & drive them to child care? Maybe she has burned so many local child cares that nobody will take her children. She says "watching some kids for a few hours" as though its nothing to be taken seriously & like its not work. Her priorites are screwed up. I am sick of lazy irresponsible single parents using school as an excuse to neglect their children. School isn't more important than your children! And if it is soooooo much of a priority, then maybe you should've finished before you decided to create a child.

BKmommy06 said...

I don't understand why #4 wants a nanny. Obviously they can't afford it.

#3... I commend her for trying, but I personally wouldn't hire a 16 yr old nanny. However, her ad is lots better than the ones I've read from CL before.

Pro-choice said...

A sixteen year old shouldn't of been pregnant in the first place. I certainly would have suggested abortion if she were my child.

RaleighWorld said...

First I don't think it's up to the school it's up to those people called.... Um oh yeah your PARENTS to talk to you about that sorta thing. Good job on your mom for taking you to get bc but looks like she was a tad late if you already had 2 kids before you were 20. Don't talk to me unless you have a valid argument.

just saying said...

I know of a few girls who went to schools where sex ed was taught from elementary school on up, but still ended up pregnant.

Their parents shipped them off to Christian school after that to reform them.

Wednesday said...

Really?? it's not hard to pop a pill everyday or stick a ring in your hoo-ha. Jeez it is free at planned parenthood. Either way, what's $35 for a pack of pills to the thousands of dollars you spend on a kid even before it's here!?

Dr. Juris said...

I don't feel proud of this girl: I feel sorry for her. We live in a world where abortions are stigmatized, but I fail to see how forcing a child to raise a child (even if she DID make an adult decision) is beneficial for anyone involved.

redrosebeetle said...

I feel proud of this girl for the same reasons Dr. Juris feels sorry for this girl.

She's a child who made an adult decision, but, has still somehow, come through it all to get her high school diploma well ahead of expectations for even a child without a child. This girl is putting herself out there and looking for work, instead of expecting her parents, her baby's parents or the state to support both of them.

It's a sad situation, but, at least she is trying to take some personal responsibility and make a life for herself and her baby. I'd hire her as a Mother's Helper.

gg said...

Neither did the private Christian school I went to or the Catholic high school I attended.

MissMannah said...

I am speaking from personal experience. I grew up in a very strict church and heard nothing but "don't have sex till you're married." I also understand that the official Catholic stand on BC is abstinence or natural family planning. That's why I said what I did, though I find it interesting that some of yall's Catholic schools didn't preach abstinence. Did they just not touch the topic at all or did they talk about BC?

okay. thaaanks said...

Arguement? I was sharing my story.

Have a wonderful day. :)

Please do!

observant.gypsy said...

#1...there is the option of putting the pay or selecting "no pay." I'm confident they just choose to omit the pay. Otherwise, the ad would've said how easy the kids are & how well they sleep, lol.

thought.I.was.done.commenting.gypsy said...

#2

Washing the laundry, cleaning the kitchen & den are not considered light housekeeping. Unless its not YOU who is doing the cleaning! Lol Its deep non-child related cleaning. And why would a nanny want to clean without being paid? $10/hr doesn't even cover the three small children. I love how the poor two year old is seen as an after thought. This parent is clueless.

HMMMM said...

Who said she was forced? And why was my comment just erased? Do you know this girl? I didn't see where she mentioned being forced. It sounds to me like she choose life for the youngest member of her family.

tm said...

It simply was not discussed @ my Catholic school.

CanadaNanny said...

I graduated from a Catholic High School in 2005 and we definitely had a full sex ed class. We learned about all the various methods of birth control etc. We didn't practice putting condoms on bananas or anything, but we were well educated on the subject. I don't know if this has anything to do with the fact that I live in Canada? I think, on the whole, Canada tends to be a tad more liberal (even the Catholics :P) than the US? I could be wrong though!

Pregnant@14 said...

Birth control works about only 80% of the time. You have to consider human error. I got pregnant on the pill at age 14.

just.the.facts.maam said...

It wouldn't have been YOUR child. Its her child. *play on words.* I would never suggest my child have my grandbaby killed. Yikes!

Why are my comments being censored? Somebody is afraid of my opinion. Wow. Truth bothers you, eh?

Sheltered? said...

Birth control was openly discussed & available. I went to a Christian school. How is that sheltered?

I'm just curious why you would think this young mother was sheltered?

Dr. Juris said...

Depends on the birth control. I use the ring, and if anyone has ever wondered how it is (lol), I COULDN'T RECOMMEND IT MORE! (Because I would forget to take a pill every day, and the efficacy of oral BC can be decreased if you vomit it up or take antibiotics.)

curious said...

just.the.facts.maam - don't pat yourself on the back too hard. You got deleted bc your original comment was posted as anonymous.

meatless mondays said...

Perhaps she wanted to get pregnant!

I knew plenty of those, and that was among people that were well informed about the BC opptions Christian & non.

But don't let me intrrupt your anti-religious /Christian party with reason.

just.the.facts.dude said...

No it wasn't. I never post anonymous. Pat myself on the back for? Why would I? Weird.

Curious said...

RaleighWorld, someone said Christian school means the child is shelterd, that's why it was brought up. Nobody said it wasn't a parents responsibility. And how do you know the girl who got pregnant wasn't on birth control at the time?

My2Cents said...

I am disapointed at the statement made about girls who attent Christian schools as being sheltered.

Its 2012, what American high school student wouldn't know how babies are created & about birth control? They have access to tv, movies, friends, books, magazines, etc. Being a Christian means that you believe in Christ. It does not mean that you're sheltered. Some Christians are sheltered & some are not. Just like anyone else. To assume that this teen mom went wild because she had been sheltered also doesn't make much sense. Having sex is a normal part of life. About half of all highschoolers are having sex. It may be too young to have sex because they're not ready to handle the consequences, both physical & mental. But it doesn't mean they're out of control. Or that they lacked reproductive education or had bad parents. My parents would talk to myself & my siblings warning us of the dangers associated with sex before marriage but that didn't stop any of us.

Pro-choice said...

Just the facts,

You should learn some reading comprehension. I also hope you would be prepared to raise that grandchild because a 14 year old sure can't. I also don't want to work so some teenage child can collect welfare. I think sex Ed starts at home and obviously her parents failed.

Beezus said...

Private school or not you shouldn't be having sex at 14. You don't need your teacher to tell you that. It has nothing to do with being sheltered. It is not 1947 anymore.
Fact is birth control is not difficult to take daily, but it can be tricky to obtain. When I was young my friends and I were scared to death that our mothers would find traces of planned parenthood on their insurance invoices and kill us! I'm so happy we took the chance though because God knows we were no where near ready to take care of a child. It's hard work and I really feel for all of the young girls who are brave enough to go through with either an unplanned pregnancy,abortion or an adoption. I cannot imagine what it would be like at 16 taking care of a screaming infant 24/7- and then to add work on top of it all! Sheesh.

just.the.facts.maam said...

I should learn reading comprehension because you feel I didn't understand what, exactly?

OF COURSE Id help raise my grandchild, if needed. Not all teen mothers use or even qualify for welfare. I didn't. My children wouldn't. My husband & I, as well as my parents earn too high of an income for myself or our children to qualify for welfare. We live in a state where minors only get welfare if the parents of the pregnant minor qualify.

How is it considered a parents failure when a minor becomes pregnant? You do understand that birth control fails a large portion of the time, right? And that even the most well supervised teenager can still manage to sneak around to have sex. Right?????

slb3334 said...

Once again we are off on something that has nothing to do with the original topic, but everyone else's opinions.

internet said...

That's how discussions work. The topics change with conversation. Normal & to be expected.

MissMannah said...

Birth control does not fail a large portion of the time. Condoms have something like a 95% success rate and the pill has a 97-99% success rate. The problems come up when people don't use it properly. IE: they put the condom on too late or it doesn't fit. Or they don't take the pill regularly like the instructions say to.

SLB, if you don't like it, don't read it. You seem to complain an awful lot about people talking on threads.

Dr. Juris said...

It's NOT the BC that's failing. That's HUMAN ERROR. You cannot blame the birth control for people screwing up. Laboratory settings is putting it on properly and at the right time, taking the pill at the same time every day and making sure to use a condom if you have an illness that causes you to throw up or need an antibiotic, or keeping it in/on the entire time. I never pulled out, and I make sure to use the ring because I cannot remember to take the pill at the same time each day. If I am on antibiotics, I use secondary protection. I do NOT use the pull out method and never did, even as a "reckless" teenager. BC is 99% effective if used properly....if used improperly, that's not the BC failing. It's human error.

slb3334 said...

HMMM. I post maybe twice a month if that. Oh, yeah, I complain a lot.

curious said...

just.the.facts.dude - :) is the same as posting anonymous. so is using any other stupid emoticon as a moniker. i guess we know now to be specific with you!

June said...

Slb3334 don't worry about the rudeness of some of the posters.

some people forget that some people come to this board not for their daily dose of drama, and airing of their beliefs.

Some actually come to learn about nannying and childcare,

I actually learned what not to post from a CL-wtf posting.
