I am facing having to get a full time job soon. I have two kids, so i am prepared to pay $800-$1000 per month to pay for childcare. My oldest will be in kinder next year, but with me working full-time, I will need someone to pick him up and take care of the little one during the day. It would help me out so much if someone could just live here and help me with the housework and the kids. If I could pay $1000 per month and give free rent, utilities, etc. I think it would be a better alternative. I just don't know what to do.... What do you pay someone to do something like that?Answer Question

I am not sure what area you live in, but comparing it to the Atlanta area, that price sounds just about right. In Atlanta, a live in Nanny can expect to make between $200-$400 per week, plus room and board. The pay is more toward the $200 a week if they only have to work around 40-50 hours a week and it is more toward the $400 a week if you expect them to work weekend hours too.
