Lisa asks…

Babysitting RateS?

Okay, so … I havent been babysitting kids outside of my family for a while so I dont know how much I should tell people I want. This is an email I got but I dont know what to say. Can you please help me?


I had a couple of questions…
Are you in Manchester?
What hours can you babysit?
What are your rates?
Do you have transportation?


The Expert answers:

Depending on how any kids you’ll be baby sitting and what hours you’ll be baby sitting. When my hubby and I go out we go to dinner and a movie we’re gone about 4 hours we provide dinner, pop, movies from the movie store and snacks and we pay her $20. It averages out to be about $5. Since she lives 3 houses down she walks over but I take her home at night and wait till she gets in the house. If you’re under driving age or don’t have a license you’ll have to ask your mom or dad if they will be able drop you off and pick you up. Good luck

Carol asks…

babysitting rates?

Whats a good rate for babysitting?…I have no clue…$6/hr sound good?

The Expert answers:

I babysit all the time.I am seventeen. The standard rate is 10 dollars per hour. But it changes really depending on where you live and how many kids you have. I live in new jersey and have been babysitting for close to 4 years now for 2 or 3 kids depend on which family both give me 10 an hour. In the begin though i use to get 8 an hour. But over the years it gone up a little. Ask the sitter what their rate is. Most have an idea . If they are new at it. Then you can basically set the standard. Especially if they don’t have that much experience.

Mandy asks…

What are babysitting rates in San Francisco area?

I am babysitting my 3 grandchildren in Walnut Creek, CA and want to hire a mother’s helper so I can take them to the pool and park and stuff. I’d feel better if I had a helper for extra eyes and hands. I have no idea what the rates are. It’s been a long time since I used a babysitter and I live in the Midwest where I’m sure rates are much different.

The Expert answers:

I would say $10 an hour
