Good idea, in theory, but then you end up with a lot of adults to entertain
as well, and they don't get to do what they came to do either. The children,
likewise, need time to play with and make new friends as well, without their
parents looking over their shoulders.
I love the idea of "payment" for babysitting services (I use that term
because in my observation that's what MOC activities have been used for by
many parents) in the form of a hour or two of your own time. ANYONE can find
ONE hour during an event to come and help the (usually quite overworked,
IMO) MOC. If you have two parents, they can even split at half an hour each
if they like.
I look at it this way, this is no different from a school trip, or summer
camp. The parents don't all go on these trips, but a couple teachers or
councelors do. However, in both cases the parents are shelling out money to
let their child participate in these activities. In our case, we're only
asking for a bit of their time, a small bit. If you can scrape up the money
for summer camp, you can find an hour to volunteer with the MOC.
