But one demanding mum shocked internet users with her list of requirements that included having “no traffic tickets”, being a “Trump fan” and “willing to pay for some snacks.”
Although The Sun can’t verify the validity of the extensive ad, it was said to have been originally posted on Facebook to find a sitter for the parent’s five and three year old kids and their baby.
However, it was later shared on Reddit with the headline “Delusional Babysitter Requirements” and certainly caused a stir.
Since being uploaded a day ago, the post has received over 1,100 comments from baffled Reddit users.
The anonymous parent started the post by saying they wanted a babysitter in the area who has a bachelor’s degree in childcare or nine years relevant babysitting experience.
In the list of 14 requirements needed, the parent requested the ideal candidate would have “no tattoos”, “no alcohol” and no “sketchy social media behaviour and/or public pictures.”
The person must have be a dog lover and comfortable with the family’s two Pit Bulls.
They must preferably speak a second language to teach the kids, have full time availability, including weekends, and their own car and licence.
In other words, be at the complete beck and call of the family.
Also high on the list of importance is the need for “NO problems with the law”, despite the fact the parent suggests the babysitter evades paying tax and offers a miniscule amount for all the services.
Even though the candidate has to offer a number of services beyond basic childcare, the ad says the family are willing to pay $10 (£7.86) an hour for their time.
Reddit users were baffled at the detailed advert for the babysitter role and took to the comments to share their views.
One wrote: “9 years experience is very specific!!
“Also, would be worried about someone who had the degree and/or experience but was still willing to graft for $10 an hour.”
Another added: “It REALLY sweetens the deal of looking after and feeding 3 young children and 2 dogs all day every day for $2 – sorry, $3!! – per mammal, per hour, doesn’t it ;)”
And one said: “I see you only have 8 years babysitting experience? NEXT!”
No kisses, one hour of play a day and ‘best dress’ until bedtime: Couple advertise for a £55k-a-year nanny with VERY strict Victorian values for their son.
Previously, a mum threatened to EVICT her daughter from her ‘disgusting’ bedroom if she doesn’t start cleaning it… so who’s in the wrong?
In Mumsnet news, this woman admitted to giving her toddler the middle finger and people are horrified.
