  • When I was babysitting, it was $2-$2.50 per kid per hour. So I would be willing to do $8-$10 per hour, depending on how well they were for a babysitter. (I have 4 kids.)

  • Rates here are $10-15 per hour for a babysitter.

  • We pay by the gas tank - we fill up the gas tank for our sitter (not daycare, just the occasional evening) and that has been the most appreciated thing we've ever done.
