Also, a little tip: if you yourself get asked by text/email/Facebook message, I suggest you use proper grammar and spelling. It'll show your clients that you take time and that you pride yourself in being proffesional. Also, don't specify that you charge per kid. What if one day you babysit 2 of 3 kids? Then you'll be out of money! I'd have a set payment no matter what. If you need anymore tips just come to me. (:

I babysit occasionally and I charge $8 an hour. I only have one family as of right now, and I was babysitting for them quite often, but I haven't in a little over a month. I will probably babysit more for them in the summer. It's two kids: a girl(6) and a boy(8). If you need tips on babysitting just ask me(: Jess D.

For me it depends on how many kids and how old they are, if they are around 5 years old and there is one or 2 kids I usaully make $10 an hour.

I babysit for a family with 4 kids! They pay $2.50 per kid per hour! So I am making $10 an hour! 2/4 of the kids take naps half the day so I am getting off pretty easily!

I don't have a set price I usually tell them they can charge whatever. That way you can get even more then if you set a price, but sometimes you might get charged less that way. Its risky but I would suggest it because I usually get between 8-10 per hr.. good luck!
