I would just say and be honest my family spends time during the holidays together and I would like some time off
Yes that is a big factor in watching kids or babies they may get hurt stop breathing or just any thing could happen and you could save the kids life if you had to do Cpr or first aid on child
Peek A boo Reading a book Seating there up on your lap Song Time Talk with baby Core Time
That is fine as long as parents are doing there job to work that is fine with me and I would just have the parent pay me extra for the time im watching there child.
I would charge any parent for there child the same as any other child Im babysitting and if you have 2 or more children then you charge more . I usally charge around 8 to 10 dollars per hour.
