  • I have a high school girl watch our two kids, 3 and 1 for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours 4 days a week. I give her $50 a week. Averages out to be about 6.75 an hour. I'm actually thinking of bumping her up to $7 an hour.

  • I watch 2 girls two days a week from 8:00 to 4:00 and I get paid 50.00 a day/25.00 per child which is 100.00 a week in the summer. Thats pretty much the going rate in this area.
