How Much Do Minnesotans Pay Their Babysitters?
If you have young kids you know how expensive "date-nights" can be when you factor in the added expense of a babysitter. Are you paying your babysitter too much, not enough, or the right amount?
Urbansitter.com just published their 8th annual child care study of close to 30,000 families across the country and found, "the average hourly babysitting rate is $16.75 for one child and $19.26 for two children." The average in Minnesota is a little lower - $13.94 for one kid and $14.68 for two kids.
