I'm 16 years old and need a job to pay for my car, so I have decided to get a job babysitting. My grandma posted an ad saying that I was looking for a babysitting job at the college where she works. She has had two people ask about it. One person wants to know how much I would charge per hour for babysitting occasionally. I have never given the people I'm babysitting a price beforehand and have always accepted what they pay me. I was thinking about $5 an hour sounds reasonable. Another person asked about babysitting weekly and wanted to know how much I would charge for that. I have never babysat weekly before so I have no idea what to ask for. I looked online and most answers were $100-$200 a week. My question is for those of you who pay for babysitting and if you think what I'm planning on asking for sounds reasonable to you? Also what do you pay your sitters if you don't mind me asking? I have also taken a babysitter's training course.
