confused babysitter in ny
Hi I am 18 and I currently babysit 2 little girls. They are 8 and 5 and I really enjoy watching them they are the sweetest things and I really like them. My problem is I watch them 36 hours a week and only get paid $75. I haven't babysat(other than for family) since I was about 13 so I dont really know what the average pay is nowadays and I dont really think that is fair seeing how the hours I work are not very average at all. I watch the girls from 1:30pm untill 1:30am 3 days a week. It is going to get even harder now that school is about to start and I will have to cook, bath, help w/ homework and clean. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what you usaully get paid/pay for a babysitter and how to bring this up to the parent and not lose my job. Like I said I really like the girls and I enjoy spending time w/ them but I feel like I'm not really in a fair situation. HELP PLEASE!!!
