How much should I charge for this babysitting job?

I am fourteen, and I have taken a Red Cross babysitting course. The job is in my neighborhood and is for a pair of three-year-old twins. I have tons of experience with twins, but I'm not sure if the mother knows that. I still don't know specific hours yet so if you could give me a range, that would be great because obviously you would charge more for an evening job than an afternoon job and you'd charge less if it's just putting them to bed and watching them sleep than if you have to do dinner with them and stuff.

The standard for babysitting is around 8 dollars an hour, but if there are circumstances in the particular job that make it more challenging, it would be reasonable to charge 10 dollars an hour.

I say 3 dollars an hour is more than enough if you are feeding the babysitter.

8-10 an hour is very reasonable 3 dollars in unacceptable even if they feed you if you get paid 8 an hour that 4 an hour per kid and keeping up with twins I have been doing babysitting daycare and have been a nanny so defiantly no to 3 8 to 10 are reasonable
