  • I guess it depends on if she gets a 'freind' rate. Around 8 it would run 80-110 a week depending on who provides food and snacks.

  • Same here....about 20$ a day...100 a week for FT.

  • I charge $25 a day and I provide all food and drinks.

  • I'd say $100/week, not including food. (So have her contribute some or pay you an additional $20 or so per week if you provide food).
