I mean I got paid $20 to watch 5 kids for like 3 hours. I didn't really think I deserved that much because they were good and I had fun. But, just remember a parent can put their child in daycare for about $100 a week. I mean about $8 an hour is good if the parent can pay you that but it also depends on the child. And if you are going to have to provide food for them.
Depends how long you are watching the child and how close u kno the family.. If they are close and its for a long time i ask for $3 an hour if its someone not.so close and a long time i say $5/10 an hour ..
