I would pay a teenage babysitter about $3 an hour for the first kid, and add an additional $1 an hour for each other kid. We have four young children and end up paying our babysitter $6 dollars an hour. We are usually out for 4-5 hours. So the most we have paid is $30. We also order pizza and if we have enough notice, we will rent her a movie that shes been wanting to see. $30 bucks is a lot of money to a teenager, for just a night hanging with some kids eating pizza, and watching a movie!
