My cousin and I are both 16, and our land lords are elderly. The man is going to be in the hospital and his wife wants to be there, but she has to watch her mentally challenged sister that day. She is hiring us to keep an eye on her sister so she can go in to see her husband's surgery. Her sister is in her 60's and we were told that she's fairly easy to deal with. We were told that her main issue is throwing herself backwards for no reason, and that we should ignore it unless she's actually hurt. I've never had to babysit an adult before, and I was wondering what is a reasonable price to charge?
How much should I charge to babysit an adult?

Jesus Christ. Are you saying that you have to babysit someone with mental health issues? I'd look up the hourly rate for caretakers in a mental hospital and add a few dollars.
That's like 25 bucks an hour. Maybe you could be nice and ask for 20 since he's having a surgery, and that pay is like babysitting-for-rich-people price.0
Just take whatever she gives.1
You should negotiate on difficulty levels.1
