Okay here is the situation, I am looking to babysit and bring extra money. There is a girl that wants me to babysit her child 13 months, for 8 hrs a week. Problem? I don't know how much to charge. Any ideas?

Call 3 child care centers in your area and ask what the rate is, what they include in that rate, and what they ask parents to supply. Decide what you want you are willing to supply (and factor in cost) and what you would like her to supply.

 $30-35 a week would be my guess

For 8 hours a week I would do $25 maybe since it is so little hours. I am baby sitting a friends child for the next 3 days, 9 1/2 hours a  day for a total of $50

I would charge around $50. It's right around minimum wage. Also, if you're providing food I'd charge a little more.

Thank you ladies! I have a friend in the daycare biz and she said ten, but I thought that was too little. I wound up asking 25$ hopefully I will here back from her soon!

I know I was surprised she quoted me so low.
