Im only 13, but I need some money since they dont give me allowence. I want to take a babysitting class but it seems expsensive, but I need the money. I havent talk about it to them yet (they are divorced) but I have a feeling they will say no. A couple other of my friends are taking it. They said that it cost 170$ because it gives you lessons, a bag,supplies, and a couple other stuff. So one, should I take it, two, how can I convince the parents to pay it?
Tell them you need their help one-time big-time, and the money will be put in to good use. Stress the point that you are asking for the assistance to make yourself responsible in earning for yourself.
And if it does not work, tell them that you need a loan and that you will pay it off little by little. You can also use the term "investment" as the course will teach you how to earn in a good way, and that you will have an advantage in the baby sitting field since you are trained to do the job.
Good luck, sweety.
Why take babue sitting classes?
