Do I need parent approval to get jobs? Or should I make an account where i'm an "adult" and explain to my "care-seekers" my situation?

I am a teen caregiver. I haven't had parent approval because EVERYTIME that happens there's like a glitch- then when I go to sign in, it says my account doesn't exist! I've remade my account 4 times!! Can I get jobs without parent approval, or should I make an account where i'm an adult and just explain to my "careseekers my problem?? I don't want to lie. I just cant figure out what to do.. OR what is wrong.

That would be a bad idea, right off the bat theyre going to think youre lying to them.

Hi Nyah,

Only caregivers over the age of 18 are allowed to set up accounts on Care.com. However, if you're between the ages of 14 and 17, you can create a parent-monitored account on Care.com -- a parent will have to approve your account and will be notified about any activity. Once you turn 18, your account will change over to a regular provider one.
