You get to make your own schedule, and you set how much you are going to be paid. However, it is not steady work, and just like with every other job you have to apply to each family that you feel is a good fit for you, and then they will set up interviews, so there is no gaurantee that you will get the position. But the families you do work for and get to know, it makes the job very rewarding. You build a wonderful bond with all members of the family that you work for, and sometimes those bonds are life long.
Flexible schedule, and make your own pay
Not steady work, not paid very much, no steady income
