How Much Should I Charge to Babysit?

The amount you should charge to babysit depends a bit on your age and experience. If you’re around age 13 and just starting out, you could ask for around $3-$4 an hour. If you’re a bit older, say 15-16 and already have experience helping with the care of siblings, you should be able to ask for $5-$6 an hour. Remember, no matter how much of a challenge those little ones are, patience is a virtue!
