Mumzilla sends babysitter list of requirements, including ‘NO history of parking tickets’ and ‘must pay for snacks’

A VERY picky mum has posted a list of bonkers requirements while looking for a babysitter for her kids - and they've not gone down well online.

Posting on Facebook, the anonymous parent - who is mum to a baby, a three-year-old and a five-year-old - explained she was looking for a new babysitter before listing 14 requirements.

"5. Native English speaking and preferably a second language to teach my children.

"6. CPR certified. Ideally a CNA license.

"7. NO history of traffic tickets and NO problems with the law (I will be running your name through databases).

"8. No tattoos. No drugs. No alcohol. No sketchy social media behaviour AND/OR public pictures.

"9. MUST be okay with my two pitbulls.

"10. MUST be okay with emergency last-minute calls.

"11. Perfect attendance 100% required.

"12. Willing to pay for some snacks.

"13. Will love to work with an infant, a three-year-old and a five-year-old.

Some said it would be like working for the mum 'for free'

The post was reshared on Reddit where other users were horrified at the list.

One wrote: "Why would the babysitter be required to pay for the kids' snacks?

"At $10 an hour, that could be like doing an hour of work for free!"

While another wrote: "It always astounds me that awful people think others actually want to look after their kids and would be happy to be there under all of those circumstances."

One confused user said: "Wait, she wants them to have no previous problems with the law, yet wants them to take cash and evade taxes?"

What do you think?

In other parenting news, we told you how one dad sent in-laws rules for visiting his new baby, including no under 18s and a perfume ban – but it didn’t go down well.

We also revealed one mum turned her old cabinet into a stylish wardrobe for her baby girl for FREE using just wallpaper and a lick of paint.

And we showed you how a rude, single mum sparks outrage over demanding texts sent to swim coach – who offered to teach her son for FREE.
