WOW! Babysitting Is A Pretty Lucrative Gig These DaysBabysitting has become a lucrative gig. Take a look at the current hourly rate....not including TIPS!
Babysitters Now Making Big Bucks!Boy, things sure have changed since back in the day when I was the 'neighborhood babysitter!"Babysitting has become the job to have if you can get it! The average hourly rate for child care services is $12.75, nearly twice the U.S. minimum wage of $7.25. And babysitters in the Northeast do even better, earning an average of $15.50 per hour. That is dang good money, and I know parents are wiling to pay a pretty penny to insure that their kids are being well cared for and safe while parents are away form home too!
Keeping Your Kids On A 'Candid Camera'It's like having a 'candid camera' on your kids 24/7, but is it really a good idea? Although they’ve existed for years, daycare webcams are becoming increasingly common -- forcing parents to decide whether to log in or tune out. A lot of parents worry about what goes on while they are at work when they have to leave their kids in daycare, or at home with a sitter. Security cameras can provide peace of mind, when you can simply log in and watch what is happening at home or at the daycare facility in real time. Once you open that door, do you feel obligated to watch on a regular basis? And if you are busy watching the 'nanny cam' how do you get any work done at the office? Is this a good idea to monitor teenagers too? A lot of questions.....
The High Cost Of Babysitters!WOW! The price of a babysitter sure has skyrocketed since the days when my daughter was little! I am shocked at what parents in the Big Apple are paying on average for a babysitter these day! Parents in New York City are dishing out the highest hourly rate for babysitters in the country, at $15.50 an hour. But even in lower-cost cities such as St. Louis, date night can cost nearly $10 an hour just for someone to watch the kids. How much are you paying for a babysitter these days?
