    One of our neighbors, a high school girl, will be watching my son one afternoon per week. How much per hour do people typically pay high schoolers to babysit? I’ve only really used family and older, college-aged sitters in the past.

    In the past, I’ve paid somewhere between $10-15/hr, depending on things like the time of day, length of time, etc.

    For 2 small children (under 4) we pay:

    High school sitters $10/hour for 2 kids
    Mother’s Helper (11-13 years) $5/hour (never left totally alone with kids)
    College or Adult sitters $15/hour but I think it would probably be more like $18 if I found someone new.
