babysitting charge?

andy14September 19, 2006

I watch an18month old 2 days for 9 hours each day; and 18month old,2and ahalf, 4 year old one day for 9 hours that day. I get for the 2 days with the one child 40$. The other day for 3 kids i get 50$. So that is 90$ for 3 days. I feel i should be making more. But not sure what to ask for. The woman is a neighbor so when she needs a sitter i am always home. It is very convenient for her to just call on the other days of the week for a last minute sit job.

Personally, I would not take anything less than minimun wage per child. Teenagers are getting around ten bucks an hour now - - you are worth that amount too!
