It depends on what type of help she provides and how mature she is for her age.

Well I might hire an 11 year old depending how mature she or he was. And about 20 bucks an hour. Give or take a few.

Minimum wage plus 1 dollar per hour for every year old the person is. So if the minimum wage is 9 dollars an hour and she is 7 years old then I think she would find that 16 dollars per hour would be a fair wage. Ask her I bet she will agree.

Minimum wage, at least. If the girl's parents are smart, they will insist on that. That's a real job you can hire someone for.

I would say $10-15 for the whole day because if you thought back to when you were that age you would remember loving to get a little bit of money. But I would not rise the amount because the child needs to make bargains. The money can teach the kid responsibility and how to spend money the right way.

11 yrs. old she is or should still be a child herself. Why would you have her take care of your child. Hire a adult babysitter/mothers helper for goodness sakes. Or god forbid watch Your Child yourself!
