If you want to go out on a date or out with friends, what is the going rate for a sitter on a Saturday night?

Wow, that seems really high.  But then again, I haven't paid a sitter in years and when I was a teen the going rate was $1/hour/child.

Try to find a responsible teenager, they will charge less than a college kid. I pay $10/hour.

Here its $30 per kid for 12 hrs so I have to pay $90. I rarely do anything because of babysitting fees.

Idk about weekends. I only use it for weekdays when I work overnight. Its a flat rate on Fort Hood Army post. Outside the gates the prices maybe different. Everyone who has home child care on post work for the same company.
