Well I live in the U.S. The babysitting rate in my state is anywhere from $5-$8 an hour. I babysit for two different families and they both pay my $5 an hour. My friend however, babysits too and she gets $7 an hour. Do you enjoy babysitting? I do! I love love love little kids.

I dont really have an hourly rate. When parents ask me I tell them" whatever you think is fair". And that works out really well.

I have 4 familys I always babysit for and a few I sometimes do.

some pay me 5 and hour
while one of them pays me 10 an hour!

I also always like to bring a speacial thing each time i come.
Either a game
a craft kit
or beads(for older kids! )

Hope this helps!
