Babysitting fee is varying between $6.00 to $20.00 per hour or more! There are plenty consideration when estimating on how much the babysitter’s fee. Mostly the things that influence the fee are:

•    The age of the babysitter

•    Extra duties.
•    “Holiday” date nights.

The first step on estimating the babysitter fee, is to ask friends or neighbor around your house about how much they paid for babysitter fee. Ask few people, so you can figure out yourself about the accurate amount of fee. Remember, the age and the number of children will influence the babysitting rate.
