How much do you Pay a Babysitter?

  I have two young children aged 2 and 4 years. I sometimes get a young girl, who is in high school, and i know her and her family well, to babysit for me. I only get her a night for a few hours, e.g 6:00pm - 10:00-30pm and only very rarely on a friday or saturday night. She has to change nappies and put the kids to bed, and sometimes bath and/or give them dinner. She has to do no cooking, but i do expect her to do a little tidy up, after the kids have gne to bed. She is lovely and i feel safe leaving my kids with her, but i dont know how much to pay her! In recent times i have payed her a rate of approximatly $10/hour. Is this not enough or to much? Please help!

Re: How much do you Pay a Babysitter?
 Have you spoken to her about it?  I would ask her if she is happy with the pay and negotiate from there.  I think it sounds ok.  Perhaps you could offer some other perks - snacks in the cupboard, let her watch DVD's etc. If she is not happy with the pay.

I would say around $20 would be enough for this girls age... Mine go to Grandmas so lucky in that way

Re: How much do you Pay a Babysitter?
Hi!  In the US, babysitter rates range from $8-$10 per hour.  We have a babysitter that we love... she is 24 years old and loves kids.  Our son loves her.  She is the only person we have ever been able to leave him with where he doesn't cry when we leave.  We pay her $10/hour because she is so wonderful and older than if we would hire a highschool babysitter.  If we use a trustworthy highschool babysitter who is a bit younger, we pay her $8 per hour.  Hope this helps! ~Megan

 I think $10 per hour is a fair price to pay, if you really want to know how much to pay for baby sitting, give a call to a Employment agency they will let you know the going rate.

i normally pay my babysitter $50 for the night but like you i know her well and shes doing me a favour shes not from a company. mine arrives once my kids are asleep so she doesnt actually have to care for them at all so 8pm till around midnight. try checking the babysitting sites online in your area? that will give you an idea of what professional babysitters in yoru area expect to get paid?

Re: How much do you Pay a Babysitter?
I've only had a babysitter 3 times in total.  The first time was from 5pm to 8pm and I paid her $40, picked her up, paid the taxi fare home and fed her since I had to cook anyway. She was asked to do the dishes and wipe down the table and benches after that was finished, and since I left the house in a clean state, told her to please make sure any toys and books and so on that are pulled out are put away again.  Recently the same girl, now with her own transport, came from 2pm to 5pm and I paid her $40 again for that time and provided afternoon tea for the 2 of them to share.  Last time she babysat, she stayed for the night and asked me fot $60 for the night.  The night was from 8pm to about 7am.  She's not really asked to do too much other than entertain and pack up what they pull out and clean up after eating.  Oh, and the times she babysat were during the time we had Pay TV so she was able to watch Pay TV (basic package, fun package, and quest package) and use the internet when DD was in bed.  I don't really go by hourly rate but hope that helps anyway.  If I'm babysitting and there's a basket of laundry, it's nothing for me to fold some clothes but it's not expected.  If you're thinking along those lines, it's probably a good idea to talk to the babysitter about it first, then come up with an hourly rate and agree on what's expected.  Good luck.
