I am in need to hire a mother's helper to watch my four kids while I work in the basement for a few hours over the day for the next month. Ideally, it would be 2 hours in the morning. What does this type of help usually pay? I will be home the entire time and if there is a major problem, I can handle it along with poopy diapers or potty training accidents. And no lunch or breakfast either, just an easy snack. I should mention that the person/friend is a graduating senior from high school. My first thought was $10 an hour but felt it might be too low. But my mom (who is almost 70) thought $10 was too much. So, how much would you pay?
