My wife and I have recently (finally!) started using a babysitter somewhat regularly such that we can get some time to ourselves. With that as a backdrop, I thought it would be interesting to hear how much you guys are paying your babysitters (or how much you’re getting paid if you earn extra money as a babysitter).
I’ll go first…
We have four kids between the ages of 3-10 and we’ve been paying $10/hour. Our babysitter is a friend of the family, very responsible, and just short of high school. From what I can tell, we’re paying somewhat more than the going rate in our area, but we also have more kids than most, so I think it balances out.
What about you? How how much do you pay your babysitter?
