How much for babysitting 2 kids for three days a week?

For the last couple of months I have been driving our friends' kids to their bus stop in the morning and picking them up in the afternoon. I'm responsible for them about 2 hours a day for 3 days a week. This summer when school is out I will have them about 9 hours a day for 3 days a week. My dilemma is I don't know how much I should charge them. I don't know if this matters, but I have 3 kids of my own. That was one reason why they had asked if I would do it. Any input would be appreciated.

  • I charge $25 per kid per day up to 9 hours.
    So $50 a day or if you want to give them a sibling discount you can offer to do $45 per day...but I would only offer the discount IF they say $50 is kinda steep.
