Re: what to pay a babysitter?

back when I was babysitting, I got 10-15/hr. and that was 15yrs ago.

we havent used a sitter yet but I know the going rate for a college student here is 15-20/hr.

fwiw, I was first aid & cpr trained, a developmental psych major and years of experience. And no, I did not sit and watch tv or nod off. I played with the kids, read to them, took them out if it was nice, did kids laundry, dishes, cooked dinner and if I was tired, I'd lay on the floor in the kid's room to make sure that if there was a peep out of baby, I'd be RIGHT there.
