Being an aunt to 10 nieces and nephews, the oldest only two years younger than me, has given me years of experience with childcare. I've always been good with children and I greatly enjoy working with them, they brighten up my day. My experience babysitting professionally started in 2013, when I was 14 and got my working papers. My sister was part of a Government program that gave me my first job, paying me $10 an hour to watch her 4 kids, two girls and two boys all two years apart, the oldest was only two years younger than me. I would make sure I was at their house on time everyday after school to get them off the bus, inquire about their day, make them a snack, make sure they do their homework, and entertain them. If they were upset, I would figure out what was wrong and find Read more a solution. If there was an argument/fight, I would find the root cause and come up with a way to calm the children down and distract them. Sometimes you have to discipline them, like by putting them in a time-out. I do not believe in being violent with kids, even if they are being violent with me or each other. It was hectic at times but I loved the experience. Taking the kids to the park and on walks was always a fun time. Being the youngest of 6 siblings, I was the one my siblings usually choose to watch their children. Therefore, I have experience with kids of all ages and personalities. Babies to preteens, calm and collected or hyper and emotional. I have experience going to school, working a part-time job as well as babysitting part-time. Whether it be babysitting 3 girls, who are all 2 years apart and quite hyper, a baby who needs a lot of attention, or children of different ages and characters. Also, I'm very understanding to the fact that things happen, parents might not always get home exactly on time which requires me to work a little later. Or they need me last minute. I'm a very patient person and understand children as well as their needs. Children bring out the best in me, I enjoy being somebody they look up to and helping them however I can. Children have always been a big part in my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. Babysitting can be a lot of work but if you enjoy kids as well as put your all into it, it is very rewarding.
