What is an appropriate price to charge for babysitting?

A friend asked me to keep her daughter for 2 days from 7am-4pm. she is a well mannered 10 year old. The friend said she would pay then asked me what her bill would be. I have no idea how or what to charge. Help please.

  • Honestly, if she was a good friend and it was a one time thing, I wouldn't charge.

  • sittercity.com has a tool where you put in how many children, their age and zip code and it comes up with the average price of what people in that area are charging.
