Well, we've always used the family/friends option, particularly at that age as there's more of a trust element involved rather than some young lass hoping to top up her pocket money, but I guess I'd work on nice round numbers, £20 for an evening if you're not going to be really late?
My daughters generally get paid five quid an hour by our friends, with an extra fiver / tenner if it goes on past midnight. Mind, what they've both realised is that the more pissed the returning parents are, the more they seem to get.
They get paid a fucking sight less by us when they need to sit in for the boy, obviously.
