It really depends on how old your child is. I’ve had a 12yo kid babysit my 7yo for a few hours but I’d be very leery to leave a baby with a 12yo. My daughter is 13 and I don’t leave her to babysit because she and her brother fight too much and he doesn’t listen to her (he’s 8 now). So I’ve invited a friend of hers to baby babysit my son. Naturally I pay her just like I would anyone else.
These days I’m too broke to go anywhere that costs money much less paying for a sitter. =)
