I think I found a summer job. A family wants me to babysit their 3 kids only two days a week but all day. 8-5. The kids are 5,6, and 8 years old. I have no idea what is a good rate to charge. I do not want to say too much and they decide on someone else. I need the money BAD for the summer! I babysat when I was in high school and early college and I pretty much got paid pennies. What do you think? I know sometimes it depends on the area you live in but I need an approx amount.
