How do you get a 14-month-old baby to go to sleep at night without her putting up a massive crying fit while babysitting?
Answer . It's best to talk to the parents and find out what they do in this case. Usually baby's like to be picked up (not always a good idea) and cuddle or rocked. To save yourself some hassels and worrying pick the baby up and walk around. Put on some soft music or hum a song to the baby. If the …baby is still crying perhaps they have gas so there are two ways to do this: . Put a towel over your shoulder and hold the baby over your shoulder lightly patting the baby's back, or, put the baby tummy side down across your lap and pad or message their back. Hopefully you'll get a little belch out of them. . If this doesn't resolve the problem, then speak to the mother. It could be the formula the baby is on which doesn't agree with the baby. If it's pumped breast milk, mom could well have eaten something that is giving the baby cholic. . Good luck Marcy Answer . you can try some thing warm like warm milk, also theres some babys that are just cry for hours at a time, then theres those that never cry like i did, i only cried when i was hungry. that was the best releaf for my parents after thay had my sister who always cried about everything.what im saying is that some baby's cry alot and some dont. you just got stuck with one that cries alot. . Now, food is not always the answer jogging with the baby in your arms is something that really works well!!! (MORE)
Well in babysitting you will need to ask parents what they specifically like. Ask the parent what the child likes to do for fun, if he/she is allergic to anything what time the parent will be back, what the child likes to eat, the usual. But it isn't really hard to do. You musn't lose your temper wi…th the child no matter what they do, otherwise the child will tell the parents and will become mad at you. and probably not recommend you. When the child need s to clean up make a game out of it or maybe a song it'll make it fun to him or her. Give the child healthy but good food like and fruit salad but make it into a smily face. Or if your making a sandwich make it wheat instead of white. And here is another idea, " Kid Kit". It is just a bag or box with fun things in it. Like a coloring book crayons dolls puppets, books, (Wizard of Oz, Neverland, ect) and some personal touches if you like. And in the Kid Kit you might want to put a bath toy or two inside for a smalll child who takes baths. Also you always want to tell the parent that you had so much fun with the child and you hope to see him/her again. 1: be yourself 2: be kid friendly 3: don't be mad 4: communicate with parents 5: make it fun (MORE)

\nThe rate for babysitters in California currently ranges from about $10 to $25 an hour depending on the babysitter's experience and if they are good with kids or not, and sometimes even age. For example, if you hire a high school student, of course it'll be cheaper then lets say a college or post …college sitter. Ranking the professional nannies at the highest rates. Most parents would rather hire someone more responsible and will be able to deal with emergencies. Professional Nannies usually demand a lot of hours and charge a lot more, but you'd feel more safe leaving your kids/infants with them. For responsible sitters at a lower rate, college students are ideal ($12-$18 /hr). Nothing's wrong with hiring a high school student as a sitter, but as a parent, I would be more worried leaving my kids. (MORE)

As a mom with two children, I would pay the following for these scenarios: Mother's Helper (ages 10-15) - responsibilities: play with one or two children with a parent in the house = $5/hr one child; $7.50/hr two children Evening Babysitter (ages 18-25) - responsibilities: give dinner to, and …get children ready for and into bed by 8 pm, clean up dinner dishes (parents gone from about 6 pm to 11 pm) = $12/hr one child; $15/hr two children I won't hire a babysitter between 15-18 right now, because I have an infant. If the youngest child is about 4, then no problem with hiring teenagers, but I'ld hire the teen at $1/hr less until they have a valid driver's license or red cross babysitter's license. A license shows me that the teen is responsible enough to complete the training. (MORE)

Depends on where you live. Depends on the ages of the children. You can figure the minimum would be $2.00 or $3.00 an hour. Often, a babysitter doesn't charge for each child. They just charge the same price per hour if you have three kids. You have to try and set the price. Don't ask her what she …will charge. Tell her you'll pay $3.00 an hour to watch your kids. Or whatever amount you are willing to pay. (MORE)
We pay ours $15 per hour for 2 kids that are 8 and 10 (pretty easy to watch)

Im a babysitter in CO. I charge $5 to $10 depending on the age of the kids and how many.
It is not about the state you are in. It is about your experience and how much the child(ren) parent(s) are willing to pay... if you have a lil but not a lot of experience then 1.50 -2.00 is a good starting rate that is per hour if you are very experenced you can charge more.
Can anyone give you their username and password to webkinz i swear i are not going to change the password im going to babysit it?
No, this is private. It's enough that I have to protect my account from hackers, but then I have to protect it from people like you, too! I have tons of exclusives and super beds in my house, and worked so hard to get my account on that level. I have many charms and things like that, a lot of webkin…z and a huge house, and there is no way I'm giving it to people like you. Even if I didn't use it, still you're not getting it. Sorry, but you have to buy your own, and stop crying to people like me. It's rude, you want a account you shouldn't be here getting it. Even though love to give to charity, I won't give my account up.I spent over 500 dollars on that account with everything. My house is worth so much, and I'm not doing it. HOPE I DIDN'T HELP!!!

It always depends. If you get a teen, chances are they just want some extra cash. 5$ an hour is usually great! With someone older, who is babysitting as a favour, mabye a little more then 5$ maybe 6.50, because they are giving up their time to help you out. As a teen and a babysitter, 5 dollar…s an hour is great, anything under is a little low, but anything over is extremely generous! You work too hard for your money to throw it away! (MORE)
A good daily rate would be determined by how long each day 5- hours would be about 18-23 8+-would be about 30 and an added dollar for every hour added above Add a 5$ dollar bonus to every additional child.
Anything that takes your attention away from the child or children which you are babysitting. You always want to have your eye on them, because they can get in to trouble, or get hurt, with very little opportunity. Try to as polite as possible to the parents and obey all the rules that they give a…s regards to both your and the children's behaviour. (MORE)
Depending on the number of kids, I charge 7.00$ an hour for infants/toddler and 5.00 for 3 yo and up. Additional children are 2.oo a head. For overnight jobs, I get the hours needed and consider the ages of kids and the duties needed to be performed during the overnight. I like to give a flat rate f…or the hours of 6:00 pm to 8:00 am of $80.00 for our neighbor infant. If additional time is needed then I charge the hourly rate of $7.oo an hour. For another neighbor, with 4 kids ranging in ages of infancy to 9 yo, I charge an 15$ an hour and and 150$ for the 6:00pm to 8:00 am overnight. Any thoughts to my system? Am I to expensive ? (MORE)
Im not sure in 2009, but now in 2010 you could get Â£5 an hour or more for babysitting. Daniel
Some girls will take whatever you offer to pay them, but depending on the area you live in and if it's a big baby sitting business or a babysitter that's just starting out, the going rate is roughly $4-$8 an hour. I am making $3.10 an hour because I live in kind of a poor area and that's what was of…fered to me. HOPE THIS HELPED! -bubble-gum-girl 13 (MORE)
Depends on the ages of the children. If they are small put them in a playpen or crib for that time. If they are older have them stay within talking distance of the door and keep talking to them. If you can, go to a neighbor and have them step in for a second. Now, imagine you are a teacher and have …30 kids in a room. Ever remember any of your teachers leaving while class is on to go to the restroom? (MORE)
It all depends on how willing they are to do what you say and also if you're willing to spend a little extra time with them. Try to have a contest on who can drink the most milk before they go to brush their teeth or chase them around the house. But make sure that there is not anything fragile or br…eakable in the way. Do that until they are exhausted. Or play Tag or hide and Seek or play Catch the Fairy. Here is how to play it in case you don't know: You will need a flashlight and a dim room ( Preferably their bedroom) and turn on the flashlight and try to let them catch it! If they do in the rare chance catch it, you have to give the flashlight to them. The trick is to turn the light off once they slap their hand on the light. Do this until they are all exhausted and tuck them into bed and turn on some classical music. (MORE)

You would need to consult a lawyer in your country to be sure of the legality of this. But look at it this way, if things go OK there will be no problem but if serious problem happens with the baby, should you be leaving him/her and going abroad? Will your 17 year old have enough experience to cope …- if your child needed hospitalization treatment the 17 year old would not be regarded as a responsible adult guardian would he/she? (MORE)

The daily babysitting rate for Ontario is actually quite low. It isthe equivalent to 5 dollars an hour in American money.
Well it depends on the client. If you are babysitting a baby, then maybe a higher rate, like 10 dollars an hour. If its a small child, like 4 or 5 years old, then the same rate. If the child is 9 or 10, the rate should be lowered to about 7 dollars. Hope I helped!
roughly $10 per hour depending on experience and circumstances e.g. experience, qualifications and number of children and ages of children and if you have to do any chores.
If you have two different babysitting rates Rate A is 10 plus 10 per hour Rate B is 12 per hour What is the least amount of hours you must work to rate b the better-paying rate?
The rates will both equal $60 @ 5 hours. After that, B rate starts paying more. Hope that helped you, it's a tough and important job .
When you start of babysitting it is important that you do not sound pushy. this may put them of if they feel the rate is too high. In my opinion it is up to the parents of the child/ren you are looking after. Once people get to know you, they may start paying you more. It also depends on how many ch…ildren they have. they may pay you more, but they may also have less money which means the rate may not differ very much. Once you have babysat a few times, people may start to tell other people about you, which will mean more money from more families! I am nearly 14, and I do babysitting... however I live in England. From the 1 child I currently look after I get about Â£4.00 an hour. So about $5.70. I really hope this helps and good luck with your babysitting. I love it! (MORE)
They are the same as throughout the week. I live in England and I am nearly 14 (in a few weeks), and I get Â£4-Â£5 an hour. Some people give more if they have more children.

What is a good babysitting rate for two kids one 5 and one 9 but this is my first time babysitting and im a certified babysitter so what would be a good price to ask for?
It depends on your age, but if your certified then you can ask for more money. I would say about $10 an hour, depending on how many hours and the behavior of the kids
I wouldn't want to scam the people so to be fair I would say $8 an hour for two children and maybe $6 or $7 for one child

Well, the first one is to know who you're babysitting. You should also know that most kids won't listen to you, believe me, I know. Third, if you want more money, go for the people who will be out longer. Then, You'll want to get on the kid's good side, then the kid will request you, and you'll make… more money. After this, you'll want to have your own ride, because the parents might be on a tight schedule, and want to move fast. And for the last one, if you don't think you can handle more than one, or don't have much experience with babies, just skip them, research them, and come back later. And there you go! Enjoy some of these facts!! (MORE)
Which of the two choices do you think is more important to your future goals, is the best question to ask yourself. Will there always be another baby sitting opportunity or is this a once in a life-time gig?
