A babysitter's going rate?
What are other urbanMamas and Papas out there paying their sitters (primarily the date-night variety of a sitter as opposed to the fuller-time more primary caregiver variety of sitter, should there be a difference).... I think I used to be paid one or two dollars an hour back when I was a kid and did a little babysitting for neighbors. What has inflation done to the going rates? Chrissy emails:
I have a 9 month old son. My husband have starting the search for a babysitter for date nights. I am curious to know what the going rate is for a babysitter these days.
