I have a few kids I'm going to start watching 9 hrs a day two go to School and the other is an infant. I would watch them 9 hrs 5 days a week and 4 hrs. on the weekend. I babysit another toddler but I don't charge that much because she's a single parent barely making it as it is. I didn't hire babysitters for my kids I was blessed with a strong family support system so I'm kinda out of the loop.
