No less than 5 an hour. 3 years olds are crazy kids.

That makes sense if you have multiple paying children (or parents of) but I wouldn't watch one child for 15 dollars a day 12 hours.

12 hours (roughly) times at least 3 dollars an hour. At least 36 dollars a day. Maybe round it down to 35. No less though.

I'd probably want at least $50/day. I'm assuming you don't have a daycare or anything in your house? One on one babysitting is worth way more than a daycare center. You're essentially a nanny.
