how much to pay a babysitter

 so my neice comes over to babysit after the kids are already in bed, so she doesnt really do anything but watch our cable tv and use our internet and eat our food, which is actually an upgrade from her house. how much would be a fair price to pay her? Say for example we are gone from 8pm till midnight. (She still just stays the night though)

Maybe $20 a night?  What do you think it is worth it to her?  And, if she does it very often, you could just do a set weekly rate?  Bump!

Id say $20 is plenty for a 12 year old its $5 per hour. I used to babysit and that would be plenty.

My sitter charges $5 an hour.. If I know she is saving for something or it is close to a holiday I will usually throw in a little extra as a thank you..

 4, but like I said they are all sleeping, so even though it's 4 kids, she's not really doing anything but sitting, hehehehe
