  • Nothing because my sisters do it. I would probably pay like $10 an hour.

  • My pastor pays $5 an hour ...i think they cut him a break because he knows the "Big Guy" unfair. LOL We would pay a sitter $7 and hour.

  • When I was 17, I babysat for a friend of mine while she was in school. It usually started around 7 am and ended around 5. I made $18 a day because that is what she would have paid a daycare for the same time, at least here. I probably would have charged $5 an hour if it hadn't been a friend.

  • We're in Ohio. It varies. We pay $5 to $8. And I prefer college students who can drive. We live out in the country which is only 2 or 3 miles from town, but still. Sometimes I throw in gas money.
