Well, don't complain to mother. Complain to neighbor. That is less than the average wage. Still tho your mother should keep to herself rather than saying that. It's almost saying your not worth that much.
#77 although that is true, babysitting is one of those jobs that isn't as easy as it seems, especially when the kid is a brat. $15/hr is a little excessive, but $15 for 5 hours if dealing with a kid you can't stand isn't really worth it; I wouldn't want to baby sit again for the neighbor after that if it was me.
$3 per hour? That's absurd. You should discuss that with your neighbor. Forget what your mother says.
Whenever your a teen babysitting especially a young teen you get ripped off a lot. I used to get 20$ for babysitting a kid from 5-12 at night, and the kid was a major brat. Sometime it was overnight. In the morning sometimes the woman wouldn't even pay me. If OP was in a similar situation I feel bad for them, espeically because most teens don't speak up about being paid improperly. Her mom pretty well screwed her over. However $15/hour is more than I make at my current really job, so I can't feel that bad about it
I hate when moms try to intrude in a positive way, but end up fucking everything up.
