Babysitting can be really fun for youth,
as well as a great way to earn money or offer service.
- Babysitting Kits. Make a
babysitting survival kit to entertain the children you tend with
something new to learn and play with. Gather supplies which will
entertain the kids like simple crafts, games, toys, and coloring books.
Do these activities with the children. The kids will love spending
time with you.
- Baby Sitting Classes.
Encourage girls and boys ages 10 to 15 to attend one of the local
Babysitting Basics classes. The workshops cover many child-care
topics, such as infant and toddler care, infant feeding including baby
bottles and formula, changing diapers, safety and first aid, and
- Volunteer to help care for children in
your neighborhood or through an organization. Conduct playtime and
recreational activities. Help children with arts and crafts projects.
- Keeping children safe is most important!
- Donít talk to your friends on the phone
- Donít watch TV and ignore the kids
- Donít do your homework until after the kids are in bed
- Donít be a snoop!
