How many kids and what ages?

 Technically, you are only making 3.50 an hour so no, not enough in my opinion.

That wouldn't even be minimum wage .  I wouldn't do it for that amount of money. I'd definitely ask for more. I'd want above minimum wage, but that's me.

That's $3.50 an hour... I pay my 16 year old sister more than that. I honestly wouldn't take less than $5.00 an hour and that's if we were good friends. $7.50 (minimum wage here) if we weren't.

I think so thats a good amount for child care. Look at competitive daycare rates...... You can't expect minimum wage in my opinion, how would she make any money of she's not making a lot at her own job.

No you're getting ripped off.  As a nanny (which is what you're doing) you should be asking for 200+ a week easy.
