i have to baby sit 2 kids. ages 6 and 9. my parents are best friends with their parents so my mom doesn't want me charging them a lot because our families are really close and they live next door. they are pretty good kids - if you put them in front of a tv they're perfectly quiet for 2 hours. how much should i charge an hour for the both of them?
orphans answered Tuesday June 6 2006, 7:30 pm: well simply 5 dollars an hour per kid. that should be fine there the ones who wanna go out and leave you during the summer while you could be out with friends having a good time instead your watching thier kids. well GOODLUCK !!!
Yourmama answered Tuesday June 6 2006, 5:50 pm: Hello, I used to charge by what parents could afford and how the kids behaved. Sometimes I left it up to the parents.
If they paid well then I would accept more jobs.
If not,I would level with whoever referred me so they understood I did real work with real children.
Hoping for the best for you!! [ Yourmama's advice column | Ask Yourmama A Question ]
