  • it really depends on geography, rates vary greatly across the country

  • With the variations in times, it's hard to give a price. If you're supplying food and sometimes diapers though along with those hours, it wouldn't be cheap!

  • Are they siblings? I assume so since mother wasn't plural. I would charge $2 or $2.25 an hr but tell her she has to start bringing diapers (or you will chage her, buy a pack and add that to the wks total) and add an additional $10 - $12 every 2 wks for food (or she needs to start bringing a gallon of milk and misc food!

  • **ETA-- $2 or $2.25 PER CHILD!

    Answer by dragonflylovr19 at 3:40 PM on Oct. 14, 2010

  • I would say $2.25/hr if she brings diapers and food. If not I would add $20.00/wk for food and supplies

  • You can see hourly rates that are charged in your area at Use the pulldown and search by zipcode.

  • I would call around to other places and see what they charge, also I would tell her to pack the diapers but if you have to continue supplying the food that you will have to charge her an extra $10.00 a week per isn't cheap these days!
