What is decent pay for a 15-year-old babysitter?

Hi! I have an anon question. I’m trying to figure out what decent pay is for a 15 year old baby sitter. She will be staying with a 10 and 12 year old. Mainly to be there if they need something. It will be for 8-12 hours. Thanks!

We pay my niece $30 when she baby sits my 3 year old.

I pay $20 a day. That’s for my 2 year old.

I would say $10/hr… minimum wage is $9.25 feel like she should at least be paid a little more than that to watch your children

100.00 for the 2 kids @ 8-10 hours

At least make minimum wage

We pay $10 an hour. That’s pretty standard I think.

It depends on where you live. For example, in nyc it would be over $100 for the day, but in Iowa or Kansas you may get $35 for the day. Pay her the same you would pay an adult, as she will be having the same responsibility as an adult.

How much should an experienced babysitter make an hour. Being 25 y/o with two children of her own? Asking for a friend

Is she cpr/first aid trained? Is it during the day or over night? I would say generally $10 hr.

It’s illegal to work minors over 8 hours on school nights. Also pay them minimum wage at the least. Whether they’re 15 or 20 they’re still working.

It all depends where you live. For 2 kids it’s about $25 an hour.

for a 10 & 13 year old? I think $40 for the day is sufficient… she’s literally going to be there to feed them and in case of emergency.

When i was 15 8 hours would get me about 45-50 dollars 12 would get me 75-80 for the day. I would cook and clean and entertain the kids so sometimes I would get more

She’s 3 years older than your daughter .find someone older.
