Ok, so if someone was asking you to possibly watch their little boy -- not sure on the age...I think under 1 year old -- while they went back to work....possibly part-time...possibly full-time -- how much would you charge?
Because I have no idea.
Here's the scoop. Someone we know has a little boy. She needs to go back to work. Someone has offered a part-time position, but because of some other issues, she may not take it. As she has looked around for other jobs, she can only find full-time positions. We have no idea what the situation will be. I asked how much she was thinking of paying me...I asked nicely of course...and she said she wasn't sure yet about all of that because she had never done this before. So, I said I'd do some research and ask friends who have done it what they were paid and get back to her.
Any of you ever been a nanny? How much did you get paid? I know they need the money, that's why she's going back to work. She knows we can use the money, that's why she's talking to me. Is there a good hourly price? Or should we just do a flat weekly rate? But it may be 2 days a week, or maybe up to 5 days a week (I'd probably have the little boy from 11am - 6:30pm). So folks, what's a girl to do? Help help help me.
