What's the going rate for a casual babysitter? Df and I need someone to babysit the kids a few times over the next month and I have no idea what the rate would be. When ds1 was a baby we used a babysitter from his daycare a couple of times and she charged $20p/hr. I thought this was ok but talking to one of my friends a few days ago she said that is really expensive.
We'll need the babysitter for 3 hours after dinner, boys will be fed and in pjs ready for bed, babysitter just needs to play with them for an hour or so then put them both to bed.
