  • How old is your daughter and how long will she be keeping the child?

  • I usually pay $5 an hour for my son. When I was a teenager, I would usually charge between 3.50-4.50 depending.

  • minimum wage at least. but how old is your daughter. 2 year olds can be handfuls. Is she someone who can be responsible, loving, caring and non abusive? we don't want to read about her in the papers. (that would be terrible). not all people are cut out for baby sitting. is she?

    also i know that where i live, the public assistance pays 125.00 a week for daycare for kids to enable moms to go to work.
