    I love looking after my besties kids, I adore them! I also love looking after my baby sister also.

    I am exhausted after it, but it's worth it cos I love them.

    Definately depends on the child.
    I cannot stand looking after my DP neice. She is 8 and drives me completely nutty. I don't know what it is about her but i can't wait til she goes home. And i feel horrible about it because i know she loves coming over to our house.. I also absolutely dread when his sister rings up to ask us to watch her, it will put me in a bad mood. lol.
    I am not fond of watching my sisters daughters either, we have two completely different styles of parenting and when they are over you can really tell how different we are, i don't like the bad influence they have on my DD. Another thing i feel bad about because they love coming over too, and dd loves playing with them. I also don't like my dd going over to their house because of the bad influences, and i can't trust my sister to respect my parenting choices..

    also i used to love babysitting before i became a mother...

    I don't mind at all. As long as the kids Im watching aren't aggressive to my own, then my house is already a bombsite from toys so it makes no difference if there are more kids here enjoying the chaos

    Depends on the child, mostly I don't mind though.
    I also don't like looking after them at my house coz we have nothing to do here at this house!!

    I enjoy it! As chaotic as it can be. I love watching our children play together. I also like interacting with other children. They're all so different, I find them very interesting

    I loved it, now I have my own I hate it. Even the best behaved most lovely kids annoy me. I know my kids so well that something foreign drives me nuts.

    I do it for a living! Childcare worker here..
    I've always loved children and babies, but must admit, I don't love all of the children I come across, lol.. so yeah, it depends on the kids themselves.. but generally yes, I enjoy being around kids. They lift my mood, no matter how down I am; going into work and having 10 two year olds run up to me screaming for cuddles.. it's a good feeling

    If the child is well behaved and gets on with my child then yes.

    If not , then no.
