I have been babysitting for as long as I can remember. My parents put me in charge of my younger brother after school in starting at the age of 10 years and I got my first real babysitting job for a family in the neighborhood behind us. The young girl was 6 months when I started caring for her. I went over and held her and fed her and stayed with her while her mother was out. As she got over I would go over everyday after school and read her stories and play outside or an educational game inside. I babysat on the weekends which included feeding her and getting her ready for bed. I also took her to school or camp, if the parents needed me to. I babysat her till she was 10 years of age. I babysat for other families, but none of the other were as longterm, but they included the same caring for the children and playing games or reading stories. I recently babysat for a family in connecticcut for 2 children, a 2 year old and a 6 year old, which included all of the above.
