I was a mother's helper from when I was 15 until I was 17. I was paid minimum wage to start, but finished at $9 an hour (I am now 24 so this was a few years back). They also fed me breakfast and lunch. I was there 3 days a week from 8-1. I made breakfast, got the kids dressed, brushed their teeth, and entertained them while their mom did things around the house. After awhile she started leaving me with them sometimes to run errands. Once I had a car and license we would go to the zoo, park, and museum to get out of the house. I was homeschooled, so this schedule worked for me. I think a mother's helper would be great to have around if you can afford it. I still keep in touch with that family. I really enjoyed working for them!
