This summer some teens may want to earn extra cash babysitting they should know what to charge for their services.

Teen Aged Babysiitting

During the some teens who are not working regular jobs will be babysitting as their first job.Once they find a babysitting job they have to figure how much to charge. A good base rate is $4-5 dollars per hour no matter where you live.. This is based on one child and nothing else but babysitting. They should get this established from the beginning. My daughter does babysitting and she has encountered some parents who wanted to do housekeeping chores and didn't want to pay extra. That's why they should establish the rates in the beginning. Before taking the job find out how many children they will be caring for. One thing also I made sure my daughter got her certificate for babysitting. They should get this if they want to get jobs in babysitting.. Some parents will feel more comfortable having someone who is certified.My daughter got her certification at her school. She also babysits at our church during services and during bible study so parents can feel real comfortable.
