I use to babysit this girl when she was younger. She has 2 boys now that are real close in age and my kids are 5 and 2.5. I would probably watch the kids at my house if I do it and so I will feed them. She says she works 9am-5pm not sure if it is everyday or not. But she said she is paying to much for her sitter now. She said for 2 boys she pays a total of 5.00 an hour so which is averaging out to 40-50 a week and she said she only gets minimum wage. Is this to much that sh is paying now? What would be the right price to charge?

It's up to you what you want to charge. The sittercity thing is only a guideline. If you want to do her a favor then by all means, decide what you will need to cover her costs. Feeding the kids might be a bigger deal than you think. I know some kids that barely eat at all, and some that put it away like a teenager. $5 / hour is not much at all, although I understand her dilema with earning min. wage and all.
