How much would you pay?

We are having a trusted friend who is a college student watch our three kids from Friday evening through Sunday evening. I will have meals all ready to go for them. Do you think $200 is fair for the weekend? We will also be leaving cash for any activities they want to do and my parents will have the older two kids for three hours on Saturday.

Just thinking of myself in college, I'd be thrilled for $200! I do think that's good for 2 days of work.

I think that sounds fairly reasonable.

I'd offer 150 then say 200. Both are awesome but saying an extra 50 right before you go just kicks off the weekend on a high note

200 sounds great. Actually I had my sister's kids for a weekend, like the one you are mentioning, and that's what she paid me, I was thrilled, and I'm an adult

sorry but to me that seems a little low for 3 kids all weekend long. that's more than 48 hours which is less than $4 an hour to watch 3 kids.
