    Whats your opinion on having family members as driver helpers during peak season, and what is the average pay?

    our helpers are only making 8.50 (it varies)and as long as you guys have a good relationship it shouldnt be a problem so people on here have had their kids(18 and older) nhelper for them, ive heard siblings cousins, parents all sorts

    I only wish my wife would come out for 1 day! After just seeing what we do for one day, that should guarantee me dinner on the couch warm and waiting, with a foot massage, back rub and bada bing! Nightly!

    You'd have to take a picture or video the event. Pop it into the player everytime she forgets to take care of business. Closest I ever got to family member being a helper was my daughter jumping for me. She absolutely understood why daddy came home so tired. Can't wait for the next 4 to turn helper age.:happy-very:

    But I am considering using my college age daughter as a helper this year. The hardest thing may be treating her as a co-worker and not as my kid. I try to never lose my cool with a helper, and I don't know if any of us can say that about our families. On the positive side, I won't have to worry about her not showing up or quitting on Christmas Eve.

    ID like my daughter to be a helper but i think it would be better if she went on another route even if it was a couple of days.
