So, I'm having an 18 year old take care of my son tonight. She will be staying here at my parents house but she will be the primary caregiver. I have known her since she was born, and she wanted to take care of Evan, and had been asking me. So, She will be babysitting saturday night from 8:30pm until he falls asleep. Her being a family friend (We're like cousins) she doesn't care about the "price" and says she will be happy with $5.00. But, yeah right.
What amount is appropriate for this night? I have NO idea, as my only babysitter has been my MOM and I give her what i can.
What is something reasonable?
