    If it’s family I probably wouldn’t charge anything otherwise outside of family it depends for how long and how old!

    My mom babysits my 17 month old full time while I work, I pay her 140 a week, I know it seems cheap 🤦‍♀️ I tried to do more but she would not take it, if I have stuff that I need to do or go out then she stays with her dad so my mom doesnt have to watch her, but me and my daughter live at home with my parents

    Is this for full time care? Or just for date night or something?

    I use pay my mom 200 a week for about 50hrs a week. We based it off my pay. so I wouldn't go bankrupt trying to pay for childcare. She didn't want me to pay anything at first but once we talked she let it go. We sat down and after look at how much I had left after paying everything and decided that with putting money in saving and doing some things extra. That's what I could spare for childcare. It worked out great. Everyone in awhile when I get overtime or a bonus. I'll give her the extra money.

    Wait, you’re supposed to pay grandma or grandpa to watch the grand baby?! Lol??? It wouldn’t charge any thing if it was me.

    My parents watch my kids on occasion when I work. I work PRN so I try to pick up shifts either when my husband will be home or they just have my 2 year old. I’ve offered to pay but they’ve told me no. If it was full time I’d push it a bit more. Ask them how much they think is a good amount and decide together. Also adding if they are providing meals and how many.

    For full time care I would say It depends on your own financial means and if there is a price she prefers. I know some that spend nothing for full time care and others who pay as much as $450 a week.

    I pay my mom $1,000 a month (4 days a week) and she sleeps on my house 2 days a week and we cover all food etc when she’s here. I feel like this is an amazing deal for a grandma but my mom acts like she’s getting the short end of the stick.

    That’s 62.50 a day! A private school I sent my daughter to for littles was 65. And I had to send good and snacks. But that was private school. I think that’s a steal for your mom and I’m shocked! She is not happy with that.
