I'm not sure that I'd hire her (free labour, or not). Someone who misses curfew and needs to be punished (so, there was no good reason for missing curfew) doesn't sound responsible enough to care for my child.
Now, if it was free yard work on offer, then I'd totally aid in her punishment, LOL.
That's funny! YARDWORK! I did that "for" a neighbors boy once. The dad came to my door in the last house I lived in, it had a huge yard with lots of pinecones and a back lot that stood several feet high, and said his son had gotten community service hours as a result of stealing a bicycle I think. Would I like my yard to be the recipient of his FREE hours? OH HECK YES! And dad kept a close eye on him and made him do WAAAY more than I would have. Even made him do the back lot!
But babysitting with an ad like that? NO WAY. Just seeing the story has all kinds of alarms going off in my head. For both the girl and the kid(s).

I'm with some of the others on the advertising her name etc.
as a parent, would you want someone babysitting your kid who was basically forced to be there?
That was my 1st thought the 1st time I saw this.
I wouldn't want my child's babysitter to be looking at the job of caring for my young child as a punishment.
