I think thats a great idea !!! Go for it !!

I'm sure your friends would much rather do a few hours for you than stacking shelves in the local supermarket, I know I would if a friend of mine offered me work.

I have often thought about doing this, as they are clearly a great resource. BUT, do choose wisely. Whoever it is will end up knowing a good deal about you, your child and your home life. Choose somewhere mature enough to keep their mouth shut. Make sure confidentiality is made clear upfront. You don't want to end up with someone who uses titbits about your life as playground chit-chat material. And talk to them upfront too about the need to separate work/friendship - otherwise lines will get blurred. Similarly, although I am always friendly with my tutors, there is a cut-off point beyond which I'm the employer and I don't want to share too many intimate details, nor should they. Someone who can cope with that divide, who isn't a tittle-tattle, and who has a brain is my advice.
