The Family Piggy Bank The Family Piggy Bank
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?

I would agree with her

 $30-35 a week would be my guess

I would say 5 dollars an hour but that's because I do it for a living.

Yeah, I wouldn't ever give up 8 hours of my time for $10. Of course I am not a fan of other people's kids, so $200 a week wouldn't be enough for me to consider watching anyone elae's kids. Lol.
