Re: what to pay a babysitter?
Depends on several things, how well you like her, how many DC and ages of DC. I only have 1 person outside my family I trust as a babysitter for DD & DS. She use to work @ their DCP and was an assitant teacher in DD's room. She made $7.50/hr when she worked there, so I pay her $8/hr and usually round up to the nearest $5, so if she stayed 4 hours I would give her $35. But even if she charged $10/hr I would pay it, I just love her that much.
