is it? £3.50 an hour reasonable. Thanks.
depends, id give a fixed sum for the whole time your away not by the hour if you do have to pay! depends really! id give a bit more myself! dont you have anyone to babysit that does it out of kindness!
It sounds a bit low really.
Depends on how old she is. I'd do a fixed sum, myself.
round these parts its £5.
That sounds very low tbh
Round here its about £5 an hour
Actually, last time my friends used a baby sitter for a saturday night, from 7.30 til midnight, it was £30. I think she said if they were later than midnight it would have been an extra £10 for every hour.
My daughter is 15 (almost 16) and has done a babysitting and first aid course, she charges £5p/h which I think is ok. £3.50 is a bit low
really? ok, thanks x
