Hey guys and gals! This tip is all about the dos and don'ts of babysitting! So here we go........
-Do wear something comfortable, you can't chase kids around in a mini skirt and high heels
-Do bring games and toys, this shows the parents you are well prepared and it gives you something to do!
-Do remember to feed them! Do not let the kids starve!
-Do talk to the kids, they like having a friend that's older that they can talk to.
-Don't play on you phone or laptop the whole time! You have to interact with the kids!
-Don't play favorites! So what if you hate one of the kids! Suck it up!
-Don't just let them watch tv all day, you have to actually play with them!
-Don't be afraid to call the parents if you have a question about something.
-Don't complain about how much you are getting paid!!! DUH!
Things yo can do:
-Play hide and go seek
-Play with a pet (If they have one of course) ;)
-Make a scavenger hunt around the house for them
-Bake something (if and only if you feel comfortable using a stove!)
-Watch a movie
And always remember to clean up before the parents get home! Also, don't be afraid to lay down the law if you have to!
Actually I am babysitting some kids on wednesday so........... wish me luck!
Luv you all!
