Default Part time childcare pricing

I charge between $5-10 per child, and get a lot of work from friends and family, who get my "discount rate" of $5. I feel like that's reasonable.. it's not even minimum wage, and they're probably paying more for their morning coffee than they are for an hour of care for their child with a well referenced, experienced provider. I recently got a lot of flack from friends who felt $5 an hour was way too much and they resented paying me. I thought this was rediculous. Nannies/providers generally charge $5 an hour around here.

What do you charge in your area?

The lady who watched my 1st daughter when she was younger charged me $20 a day. That would be about 8 hours or more for 5 days a week. She also provided homemade meals.
