Q:

How much should I charge for babysitting?

A:

How much to charge for babysitting services depends upon the age of the babysitter and the age of the children. According to About.com as of 2014, a babysitter who is 17 years or older may command $8.00 to $12.00 per hour, especially if she has experience and has CPR training.

Younger babysitters, aged 15 to 16, can command $5.00 to $6.00 per hour, while a babysitter aged 11 to 14 may be paid $3.00 or $4.00 per hour.

Before pricing a babysitting job, babysitters should consider how many children are being watched and whether the children have any special needs. Babysitters who have additional training in lifesaving practices can command more per hour and per child.
