You should def be charging something .dont forget if that child is sick during the night u are the one responsible for it. €50 sounds good to me. I´m sure you´d have to give her some supper and then breakfast as well.

What times (hours) are you being asked to do?

Hi there,
Yes, I know its a lot of hours for 60 euro, but the child should be asleep (hopefully!) from 9pm until morning. Realistically 90 euro is an awful lot for a parent to pay for one night in the current climate, if it is a child that you normally mind during the day, which is what I am assuming. What do other parents think?

Yeah i do mind the child regularly, i never use to charge for overnight but lately she has been staying a lot. €90 does seem like a lot for just one night when the child will be sleeping anyway.. but thank you all for your reply´s :)

Hi there,
I would charge a daily rate for that, plus a little extra. 60 euro?
