‘I don’t want to babysit my grandchild without being paid. Why?

There’s a lot to worry about when you’re getting ready to have a baby. Is it going to be a boy or a girl? What color should the nursery be? How much will a baby cost? What about prenatal care? If your or your partner’s parents live close, you can usually mark daycare off your list of worries. There will always be someone around who can babysit in an emergency. However, one grandmother has gone against the grain and sought reimbursement for childcare.

It appears to be a strange idea to me. I’m not a grandmother, but my mother is, and she loves having the opportunity to watch her grandchildren (even though they’re becoming a little too old to be babysat). However, one grandmother took to Reddit to question if she was correct.”My daughter is 29 years old, has a 1-year-old son, and is about to return to work.” She works 5 days a week, 7-8 hours a day from 7:30 a.m. to 3 p.m., and asked if I could babysit her son two or three days a week.”

She penned a letter. So far, so good, correct?”Of course, I am willing to spend time with my grandson, but I explained to her that I would like to be paid $12 per hour.” She recognized my need for compensation but then insulted me by seeking $10/hour because she claims she cannot afford it even with her $22/hour work.”

“I’m not a daycare, I have my own life, I work for myself, and I think she should understand that I’d be giving up my time when I work from home, and if I’m going to give up that time, then I need money to replace the time I’m giving up from my job.” “I adore my grandson, but as I previously stated, I am not a daycare.”
