Not your mom. Not your sister. Not your friend. What is the going rate for a good babysitter? I have a potty trained two year old who can tell you anything he wants and is so easy. I want to go out sometimes get these girls are charging $10 an hour. Shouldn't really be more money than minimum wage? I'm a teacher. I don't make a lot of money...lol

I've never used a babysitter, but I do babysit a 15 month old for $20/day.

The one I go through is cheapest. Others charge 25 a day. Guess I'm lucky to have this girl..
