...."she will live free, it's a trade off"
What's the going rate for a Nanny or Au Pair? Ours lived with us last summer (College student majoring in early elementary) and we were told by everyone that we overpaid. So without telling you what we paid, what is the rate? She will only "nanny" for us 15 hours/week since that's all I work. She can get another job MWF and on weekends. We have two kiddo's, 2 1/2 and 5. And this summer our 5 year old will be in camp nearly every week of the summer that she'll live with us (June and July) from 9-12 or 9-1, and then when she's home our younger DD will be napping, so it's less work this summer than last. I am also there working some remotely during her "nanny" time, so I'm there in an emergency. She will live for free and eat our food that we buy. We don't need a live in Nanny, she asks us to live here because it's near her friends and Church. She goes to college in another city.
Let me have it, what is the rate per week or per month? I've gotten anywhere from $345/week to nothing she will live free, it's a trade off. I truly don't know. For the record, I'm in a nice area of Austin, TX.
