What is a appriote price for...

Posted by   + Show Post

I am going to be watching two children ages 6 yrs and 21 months in my home twice a week (thurs-fri) from 9:30 am to 5pm. We are trying to figure out a price that is good for both of us, what would you pay/charge?

I was wondering why a 6 year old wasn't in school, lol.

I used to get $20 a day to babysit my sons cousin.

How many kids and what ages do you have at home? You need to figure out a price that makes it worth your time and sanity.

 This is what I charge also.

 I get paid $20 a day for one child

if they have more than one child it is $10 for each additional

I paid my babysitter $75 every other week and Landon was only at her house for a couple hours two to three times a week. My bs sitter charged half of what the local daycares charged.

 I'm no help, I babysit for free. It's my grand- kids though and they can't afford to pay anyone.
