I have a teenager who is going to start babysitting my boys sometimes. Just wondering what the going hourly rate is.

I think if its family ,it should be free and they would like to help out . The paying part should be open with you and husband and the sitter.The going rate in Mass. is around $5-$7.00 hr.good luck

It really depends on where you are. It's $5-6 an hour here (between DC and Baltimore.)
