Tipping the Sitter
Hi All! I am scheduled to babysit for a family tonight, and one of the parents just let me know that they will pay my base rate plus a tip at the end of the night. I've had other families give a tip, but most of the families for whom I babysit don't offer tips in addition to my hourly rate. I'm curious to know if tipping the babysitter is a relatively common practice? I'm also curious to know what other people consider to be "good sitter etiquette"? Things like providing dinner for the sitter, letting the sitter use your Netflix account (I once babysat for a family who asked that I sign into Netflix with my own credentials), etc.?
