What is the going rate for a teen babysitter?

We used to use one of the girls from the kid's preschool, who was in her twenties, she charged $10/hour....but now we found a nice girl from down the street, she's 15, we asked her what she charged but she got kind of googly and embarrassed, lol, so I'm curious, what do you pay a teen babysitter?

  • I got paid $8 an hour about 7 years ago, so $10 an hour is probably right. If we are going out for the night and come home past 2am, I usually give extra since shes obviously spending the night then, lol.
