Leave home with peace of mind
First of all, yes, I was babysitting from the time I was 12 BUT was I a good babysitter at 12; that would be a resounding NO! Do I understand the difference between the serious responsibility I’ve been given when babysitting now; unequivocally YES!
I’m not proud, but I have to admit that I was a bad babysitter. In my defense teenagers are self obsessed, that is normal, and I was no different.
I began babysitting at the ripe old age of 12, and I was clueless; imagine!
I’m shocked at how many people think they can BE a babysitter. Seriously. I’ve interviewed or talked to people that can’t put a sentence together let alone take care of a child.
