  • If it's only a couple of hours and you're not feeding him supper then I'd say maybe $5 per night.

  • I agree, 5-7 a night but I would include a snack :)

  • If you are picking him up from school you should charge more, like $10. If not, $5.00

  • You can also check out care.com and see what others in your area charge/pay. Use the pulldown to see categories
