Editor's note: In China, grandparents usually help take care of their grandchildren while parents work full time. Many of them don't get paid, but the question is, should grandparents charge a fee for babysitting? You are welcome to share your opinion.

Grandparents should get paid for babysitting if it is going to be an every day job. I think it's selfish to expect your parents to do it for free. You are asking them to take on a full-time job to help you out. I couldn't live with myself if I took advantage of my parents like that. Now I'm not saying you should pay them daycare prices, it's more of the thought that counts.
