Hi all I was just wondering if anyone knows of or would like to start a babysitting co-op in the astoria area. I work 5 days and find I would like a few hours to myself on my days off as well as get to know other moms and their kids. My daughter does not really have any kids that she plays with regularly and the moms (sometimes the dads) don't talk with me at the playground..don't know why..

I was also thinking of hiring a high school girl for a couple hours each week but it looks like most of them expect up to $20 per hour. I am not prepared to pay that. When I was in HS the going rate was $5.00...my how things have changed.

Any suggestions would be helpful

Thanks

O.

What can I do next?
