I have all girls. Two 13 soon to be 14 and a ten month old today. They hate looking after her while im at work but i cant afford daycare nor do I like it. What can I do to make things a lil easier for me and them ?

Offer to pay them - I can't imagine they would expect anywhere near the amount a daycare would - maybe 40$ each a wk? thats 80$ compared to average 175$ at 35$ per day.

It's alot to expect young teenagers to take care of a young baby - offer them a reward - as they deserve. Not only could it help keep them happier with the situation, it should ensure that the baby is more acknowledged during the time your out of the house as well, and it can ensure you are able to have expectations of them while they babysit.

Good luck!
