Good morning moms,
My 3 years old goes to preschool every morning, and neither me or my husband can drive him (I don't have a driver's license yet and my husband is leaving for work too early), so my friend, whose daughter goes to the same school, picks up my son every morning and then bring him back after school. The way to school is this straight line, where my friend, driving from her house, stops at my house on the way, and then continues on that straight road, dropping off her daughter and my son in school(my point here is that she doesn't make any circles or doesn't go out of her way). I want to pay her, just because I know she is in a difficult financial situation. But I have never done that yet, I have no idea how much would be right to pay her. I thought $50/week, but then it feels like it's too little... and at the same time, I don't think I can afford much much more than that. What do you ladies think would be the right amount to pay? What would you pay? I told her I'd give her some money today, so your advice would be greatly appreciated ;)
Thank you, moms, for your help.

If you are able to afford the $50, go for it. When the tutoring, interpreting, etc maybe $40, or once in awhile take her (or let her drive ya'll to a girl's night out that you spring for??
