does she reguarly watch your daughter? How much do you pay then? I would give an extra bucks on top of what you normally pay her for an evening.

I paid my sitter $5 an hour. So if it is for 10hrs I say $50. That is extremely generous pay for sitters around here. You need to know the going rates in your area, they vary differently from area to area.

You don't need to pay her if she is sleeping over at your house. Don't pay her for every hour she sleeps. I would say Laurens suggestion of 40-50 is more realistic.

ask her what she's expecting to get paid and negotiate. how many hours and all that does make a difference.

80 dollars sounds good for a set fee. here its 35 a day to leave your child in a daycare,so if its a over nighter.70-80 should make a person happy.

$10 an hour. That's the going rate OR you could pay her a set fee. Say.......$80? That's about $5 an hour give or take.



***Edit to add it really depends on how many hours you have her.
