Looking for info for fees for childcare. Do you watch other children and how much do you charge, or how much do you pay for childcare while you work? Do you double the amount for 2 kids or how does it work? My MIL usually watches my children, but I wanted to find someone who has other kids they can play with. I had someone (a family friend) say they would like between $11-12 an hour. I had no idea it costs that much! That's $3 more than minimum wage.My boys are 9 and 11. There isn't much maintenance with them. Do you pay more bc you have a cwd? Thoughts?
