The rate depends also on what the babysitter has to do. When she babysits m=
y son after 9pm she asks $10/h instead of $13.

  My daughter is a sitter and she charges $10/hr. She is a high school stud=
ent, and sits regularly for 2 families.

    My babysitter asks $12/hr and I give her $13. Sometimes I share with a =

    neighbor and each of us pay her $8. She's a nurse student.
