mod-i have to babysit a 7 year old and a 9 year old. how much do u think i should charge?




Hey girl, if you're unsure what to charge, you can always have the parent set the price. A good standard rate to go by is $7 an hour, but depending on the number and age of kids, this could go up or down. Hope this helps, girl--remember, choose a price that's fair to the 'rents.

sorry, but i have an-off-topic question.
How long does it take for my comments to show up?

 

Hey girl, that depends on how many questions I have to mod, how long your question is, how long others' questions are, internet connection speed, etc. There are many factors to consider. <3 Jeannie

I have a babysitting course tommorow and so when I start babysitting or doing mother's helper and the rent's asked how much money I want an hour or just how I want after watching the kid(s)what should I say????




Hey girl, the common pay for babysitting can be anywhere between five and fifteen dollars an hour - it all really depends on the family, your duties, your skills, and how long you'll be watching the kids. A good place to start would be between five and seven dollars an hour. Don't be shy to ask them what they would like to pay you if you aren't completely sure.

I am 12 and I started babysitting about a year ago. I usually get $5 an hour for two boys that I watch. Do you think that's a fair price? If not what do you think is?
Thanks so much, I think mods are great!

Hey babe, I guess it depends on your responsibilities and how many hours you're there. Talk to your family and other friends who babysit to see what the going rate in your town is. Don't be afraid to ask for a raise if you feel like you need one. You're the one giving them a service so don't forget that!

And the little boy is such a handful!
