Bridgett sent us an e-mail:"How much do babysitters usually go for these days? 'Cause back when I babysat...well, that was a long time ago...i think rates have gone up since then."
Good question, Bridgett.
Clearly the answer varies by region, the age of your child and the age of your babysitter. We're interested in hearing what the going babysitting rates are in your area.
And, are there any tips you can recommend to Bridgett when looking for a babysitter?
