My major babysitting dilemma is that our family friend's always have big parties with tons of kids, and their daughter, Abby, is younger then me and she always tells people that I am a certified babysitter so they can leave their babies and kids with us. At a party, I would much rather be playing baseball in the yard or whatever, but she uses me to make people leave their kids with me...I don't think she realizes it though...

OMG! i really want to babysit some toddlers and i feel like i have the responsibility but my parents wont let me! help?
by carleighb on 6/30/2009 3:54:48 PM
I get 10 dollers an hr for three kids that are 6 and 6 (twins) and 8. I kinda feel like there paying me to much because the kids are really good and easy to handle and I would rather be able to babysit more for less than less for a little more $ because in the long run i would pry make more money and i dont mind babysitting. Whenever i try to tell her its to much she insist i keep it and i end up feeling bad because most of the time she really does need a babysiter. how should i tell her that i really dont need that much??? thank you.
by ladymohawk on 6/30/2009 3:34:59 PM
i might be babysitting for my first time with family (like 2nd or 3rd cousins) sometime soon. I think 1 is 2 yrs and i have almost no probs with her and she loves being around me. and a 4 year old?. what do you think i should charge if i do? i dont want to be greedy since it would be my first time babysitting for someone other than my little (now 5 yr old) bro. and it is family and i would love to keep sitting 4 them. HELP!!!

I always feel really awkward about like talking about pay and stuff and unless they bring it up, we don't talk about it and they usually just pay a pretty good amount at the end of the night(between $5-$10 depending on the times and stuff, if I did it in the middle of the day on a wednesday in the summer for only 2 hours while they were home just to keep them entertained, then only like $5ish per hour, but if it were for 5 hours babysitting three kids late at night, I would get paid like $8 or $10 for each hour the kid was awake then once they go to bed itd be less...usually the clients are pretty good about figuring it out and they tip sometimes too. I don't mind late nights and stuff but it gets tiring and I don't like to fall asleep because one time I did and I woke up to the kid next to me watching tv at 11:30!!! Good thing the parents weren't home.

i had thee worst babyitting job ever. my neighbors have 1 3year old son and they called me one morning frnatically looking for a babysitter for that night. i said yes. little did i know, they were throwing a party (theyre very young) and all their friends brought over their young kids, all between the ages of 1 and 7, too. so i thought i would be watching 1, when i was watching 7. they were partying upstairs and i had to keep the kids in the basement. oh, and guess what else? THEY ALL SPOKE SPANISH.and for a five hour, 7 child gig that i didnt even expect, i got paid $40. plus, one kid hit his head and wouldnt ssay anything for the rest of the night, so every1 thought he got like badly hurt. but i feel like i definitely deserve more money. next time they call, im busy (they did the same thing to my sister).

i had a really hard babysitting job once, the 7 yr old boy had a disability and was known 4 randomly leaving the house without asking, the little girl had a peanut allergy (which was one of the few things the boy could eat) and the baby would not stop crying!!! it was really overwhelming but i think i handled it well. i got 45 $ for sitting for 5 hours.
by anakinlover88 on 5/24/2009 4:52:04 PM
I only get $5 an hour, I usually babysit three days during a school week, for like 2 and a half hours at a time. but on weekends i get paid a little more, or sometimes i get extra.

Dear spirit_101222_ ,
If you feel you should be paid more you should talk to your parents and ask them to tell the kids parents what they think is a higher price that they can afford!!
by abercrombie-gurl on 5/1/2009 7:38:54 PM
I charge like $3-5 an hour, but I think that I should be paid more, but I feel rude asking for more.

I get paid like 20 dollars for about 4 hours for 1 child who is 6. She has hearing difficulties and has a cocliar implant [i dont know how to spell it! sorry]. Also... I helped this girl's mom that lives down the street. The girl has Cerebral Palsey. She is in 3rd grade. I got paid like 8 dollars for 2 hours. I would just fold laundry, help with dinner, help her with hw...etc. The parents should decide the rate and amount I think.

by *CupcakeLexa* on 3/21/2009 5:20:09 PM
At first, charge a small amount of money per hour. For one kid, maybe $2-3. If there are two, $3-4. If there are lots of kids, charge $2 a kid per hour. Most likely, you'll get tons of biz and the parents will give you a raise! Remember, DO NOT ASK FOR A RAISE! And, start small.
