Is this fair enough to DD?

I babysit a 3year old boy during the week and he's bad as hell. I only get paid $50 because his grandma has custody and she struggles tremendously so I'm helping her out. DD is 7 and helps me alot with him and her siblings by keeping them occupied while I'm cleaning or cooking dinner, etc. I told her I'm going to start paying her $5 a week for being such a big help. Does that sound fair?

I think that's reasonable for a child her age.

If he is bad as hell, don't babysit him. Grandmas problem, not yours!

Should I make her save it or take her to spend it every week?

She literally has no one else and can't afford daycare. I know it's not my problem but I feel bad and want to help.

You should let her decide since she kind of got roped into doing it.
