Is $13.00 too much to pay for 8 hours on 2 different days? What's a good amount to pay a sitter?

I have my teachers permit for early child education and when I work as a babysitter I charge between $10-$20 an hour depends on children ages..

I'm a babysitter and I charge $15 per hour in Los Angeles. I'm in my 60's and experienced. But this is as an occasional sitter. As a regular 2 day a week gig I'd probably drop my rate to $10 especially for an infant and in my own home.
But $15 is the going rate for date nights and especially if there are multiple children!

Some of this depends on where you live. I answered a post where the nanny would make more than 40K! 20 bucks an hour plus OT for one kid. I was informed this was typical in Manhattan, NY! WOW!

If you are the one willing to pay that... you will create a very happy sitter.

My last child care job I was paid $10/hour... and I was cheaper than their last nanny. She received $12/hour for one child and $14/hour for two.

It depends on where you are and what people are willing to pay and it varies GREATLY from area to area... and even family to family cuz that $10/hour was the highest paying job I ever had. ;)

Yes that is to much to pay. Call around to daycares at get weekly prices and other sites that have in home sitters and check it out and compare prices.

I just answered this on a different post. Are you saying $13 dollars TOTAL for 2 days, or do you mean $13 per hour????????
