  • You could check out and see what people charge in your area. Use the pulldown on the first page and your zipcode. It will tell you hourly rates.

  • tough. I pay 11/hour for two boys but I am on the low end. Most people in my area pay 14/hour.

  • It really depends a lot on who you are paying and what exactly you are paying them for. If you are paying someone to just make sure the kids don't get into trouble its a lot less than if you are paying someone to interact with your kids. Or if they are expected to make meals or do chores during nap time. I've paid between 6 and 15 an hr
