How much should I pay a babysitter?

5 an hour is reasonable but do it by the hour....never say OR THIS a day. If she's watching your child for 3-1/2 hours, it should be 17.50....not 15.00.
Edited to Add: and I can't count -lol. 15.00 is good for the time you said. And, 5 bucks an hour where I live for a 15 year old is plenty. Not sure where the 10/hr person lives but thats a lot for here....Colorado.
$15 a day for a 15 year old to watch your son 2 1/2 each day sounds reasonable to me. I know for me I am not made of money and my sitter watches my twins for 10 hours a day $65 per day. That is the amount we agreed upon. There is no way I could afford $10 an hour that would be $500 per week.
