How much would you pay?

I have a few friends with pre-teens that want to get some baby sitting practice in with my 2 yo. How much would you pay them while there is an adult at home with them? There is one who is working 1 1/2 hours 3 days a week and another who is working a total of 2 hours a week.

  • It depends on the minimum wage where you live... it should be at least somewhat compatible. Here the min. wage is $8.25/hr... so I guess I'd come somewhere at least near that, especially if trustworthy and a good babysitter.. I'd probably come in with more than min. wage.

  • It all depends on how long the sit for and how long they watch them for and what shape my house is in when I got back..
