I've been considering taking an offer to help this woman take care of her 18 month old boy two days out of the week. I've worked in childcare before in a licensed facility and I have kids of my own, so taking care of the child is not the problem. I just don't know how much I should charge. I want to be reasonable. What's a good price for this situation. Two days out of a week for 9 hours each day. I'll provide breakfast lunch and snack. And if I were to provide diapers and wipes?Answer Question

$5 an hour is nothing! When i was 17 i was getting paid $12 an hour to watch toddlers. I would settle on a weekly price, like $125-$150 for the two days. That is a reasonable price for you & her. It has to be worth it to you. If you think that is too much for her, then tell her the price is negotiable (if it is) You don't want to feel as if you are going out of your way for nothing, you will get resentful if it's not worth it for you.
