Babysitting isn’t just for teenagers anymore. Parents are always looking for reliable and responsible people to watch their children. Prices for babysitting varies according to the area you live in, so try and find out what others are charging. Most babysitters can get upwards of $15/hr depending on experience.

Other sitter jobs are a great way to make extra money too. Pet sitters are always in demand since most people would rather not send their animals to a kennel when they go out of town. Additionally, you can day sit while people are at work or start a dog walking business. House sitting, elder care, and patient sitting are all alternative sitter positions where you can make additionally money as well.
