I have a babysitting job next week from 6-11 or so at night. I am 12 and I need some help to find out how much to charge!!! The child I am babysitting is a 3 yr old girl that has pretty bad temper tantrums. She hates it when she doesn't get her way. I'm thinking about asking how much she'll pay and then lower it a $1 if it's really high but i want to charge like $8. I have a lot of experience with kids of all ages and I help out at a daycare with her class. Does anybody think that sounds reasonable?

Hi Megan, here are some answers to a question about how much to pay a babysitter that may be helpful to you http://moms4mom.com/questions/193/how-much-do-you-pay-a-babysitter

The other thing to consider is what you'll be doing - I would pay a babysitter more if the child is awake and playing the whole time, and less if the child is sleeping and the babysitter just has to hang around and listen to the baby monitor.
