Description of service

This is for local baby sitting service in Ashland, KY. I pay a teenage girl, who is a friend of the family, about $10 an hour to watch my three small children. My wife and I usually go out at night about once a week, for at least three hours on any given night. I have paid my baby sister anywhere from twenty to fifty dollars depending on how long i'm going to be out and which day of the week it is (on weekends she expects more).

Review of Service

I love our baby sister. She is a part of our family and is really close to our children so I don't mind paying her a little more than average to watch the kids. She plays games with them, takes them to the mall and just has fun with them. My kids actually get excited when I tell them she is going to be baby sitting. I wouldn't have it any other way.


Find someone you trust and pay whatever they ask. A good baby sister is hard to come by, and trustworthy people are even harder to find. Even if they do charge a little bit extra, it'll all be worth it for the peace of mind of knowing your kids are safe.
