Hi, I'm a stay at home mom in Michigan. I'm trying to find what reasonable rates is to charge someone to watch their child in my home roughly 10 hours a day, 3 days a week on average. The dad is a friend of my boyfriend's, and the mom and I are becoming close friends. The dad approached my boyfriend and offered $30 a day. I obviously feed and change him, and as of lately I've been providing all his food with the exception of milk here and there and I'll also bathe him daily and therefore wash his clothes. It's all extras I provided. He is about 18 months old, a big handful as most are at that age, I love him to pieces and the fact it's a friend makes it hard to approach the subject of a raise. Any input, resources or general advice would be appreciated!
