  • 25 a day ,any less would'nt be worth tying down your days for. Good luck

  • Just because it is your cousin, if it was anyone else, I would probably charge 30-35 dollars for the day.

  • Well she pays 15 a day now if you break it down. How long does she need you? I would find out the hours and go from there. But she pays about 15 a day now so I would do 15 to 20.

  • I guess 20 a day wouldnt be bad but then agian are you seriously going to charge your cousin when its only one day a week. I wouldnt charge anything over the summer if it were my family for just one day a week but if you need the money then i guess go for it and do about 20.

  • Since she's off for the summer, you could consider having her watch yours one day a week too so you could get a break and do something you want to do. Otherwise, I'd say no less than $20.
