Hi, I'm Laura from youngwritersworkshops.com and I'm going to talk about how to write a babysitting contract. First of all, it's a really good idea to have a babysitting contract because when you are establishing relationship with the babysitter, it helps both the babysitter and the parent to have things really clearly outlined so there's a really clear understanding of what's expected on both sides. Never hurts to have things in writing. So, some of the things that you really want to include in your contract are the rate; so that everyone's clear on exactly what the hourly rate or weekly rate, whatever, however you're choosing your pay. You want to also include any benefits that are included and what the stipulations is, like if it's, the babysitter needs to work certain amount of hours to achieve the benefits; that should all be written out in the contract. Be sure to think about any other expectations besides taking care of the child. For example, if you want the babysitter to do a light cleaning, or just to make sure that the house is back the way it was before, before she arrived, or if you expect her to do dishes and some laundry, make sure that all of those expectations are really clearly written out. Other things to consider are what happens if someone is ill, for example if the babysitter is sick, what happens, or if your child is ill, does the babysitter get paid or is it a day off. Any expectations about things like that need to be written out so that overtime you know exactly what to expect. Once you have your contract written, have both sides read it and be sure that it's clear and have it sign and that's your record of what you've all agreed to. So those are some ideas about how to write a babysitting contract.
