I babysit a lot like every weekend. Babysitting is a great way to make money but some of the prices people are talking about charging is kinda ridiclous.Keep your rates cheap and people will keep calling. I charge only $2 an hour for 1 kid. $5 for 3 kinds. If your being paid $5 an hour for 1 kid your a lucky ducky

I have a big problem. I just babysitted a 8 year old a few days ago. I stayed all night and babysitted and my parents don't think im old enough.

I just started babysitting for a family two doors down and my older cousin. My going wage right now is $5 an hour plus $1 for every extra kid. My dad says that I should raise my price to $6. I don't have a problem with this but I need help starting up the money convo with my clients without sounding mean because they still think that I still charge $5. Any tips?
P.S. Please, if you can post the answer in my profile. thnx.

Hey Girl, just be confident in a subtle way, let them know when you first show up  that your rate is actually 6$ not because you have had more experience, this way you will get the talk done with as soon as you get there. *Cara T*
