I'm looking at babysitting two brothers over night this weekend. Their mom is single abd just wanted a night out. I told her twenty for the night and she will come get them early afternoon. Probably drop them off in the evening.

Sound reasonable?

I charge 30.00 a night per child. Especially in a party situation.

I wouldn't do 2 kids overnight for less than 35$.

They should be sleeping since it's over night, I think it's reasonable.

Idk I feel like she's probably having to budget how much she can spend going out and not having any family (only child and her parents and grand parents are dead) she shouldn't have to pay more for babysitting than she would to get in a club or bar and buy herself a drink.

How old are the kids? 

I think $20 for a night is reasonable if they aren't babies.

That's what I'm thinking. They will mostly be sleeping anyway and I just want some shopping money so dh doesn't strangle me for the 30 bucks I just spent buying dd some adorable boot socks and scarfs and ear muffs fot Christmas lol

2&4 I believe.
The younger one might not quite be 2 yet I've kept the older one before and he was pretty easy. A few match box cars kept him busy and quiet
