Insta-Poll

Quick.  This is another "come-up-with-your-answer-before-you-look-at-other-people's-comments" kinda thing.

Question: Let's say that you took a two-hour drive to attend the temple.  Another ward (three leaders and three YW) offered to babysit twelve babies (under 18-months-old) in order to raise money for camp while you did a session.  How much do you pay them for your one child for 3.5 hours?

  1. As a rule of thumb, we pay $3 per hour per child...now that we have 4 kids, it's not such a bad haul for one person or a couple young women.

  2. like i told you, about $18. you should also mention that it wasn't "moms" doing the babysitting - it was YW doing fundraising.

    ben said $20.

  3. If they didn't tell me how much they were charging, I would give them at least $20, maybe more (especially if it was a fundraiser).

  4. I'd say $10 but I guess I'm cheap! If you're fundraising, I guess whatever you can splurge to make them feel good :)

  5. The going rate for a babysitter in my ward, YW or not is a fat $10/Hr. I don't have any idea what it would cost for more than one child.
