I know Indy is a little backwards, but our minimum wage is $7.15, going up to $7.25 July 1st.

I think you can realistically ask for about $100 a week without feeling taken advantage of, or like you're taking advantage of family.

For the record, my mother hires someone to watch my brothers during the summer, drive them around, and make sure they don't kill each other. They're 11 and 13, and she pays $200/week for them. They are, however, terrible children, so that increases the price some.
