When I started babysitting, I had tons of questions. I needed to know how much to charge, how to handle kids that were fighting, and what to do if there is a weather emergency. There is a lot to know to be a good babysitter.
I imagine parents have a few questions about hiring a babysitter as well. Like, what does their babysitter expect from them? After all, this babysitting thing is new for them too! Do you think they know how important it is to let the kids know that I’m in charge when they’re gone? And what about feeding me? Babysitting is a lot of work and can make a girl hungry!
Parents, I want to help you out so that you can be the best family to babysit for in the neighborhood. Check out my video on the five things you need to know (and do) for your babysitter.
