It may be tempting to say yes to every babysitting job you’re offered, especially when you first start babysitting. But there are definitely times when you need to say no.
As a babysitter, there are things that I’m comfortable with and things that I’m not. If you think about potential babysitting situations, I’m sure you can think of a few things that would creep you out as well! Before you accept a babysitting job, you need to make sure you’re comfortable with the family and the surroundings. You also need to make sure you have the skills to handle the job as well as get your parent’s permission. If you’re missing any of those ingredients, you have to say no.
