Full-time hours

Throughout my middle school years, one of my duties as the oldest child included supervising my three siblings, mostly while my parents ran errands. That responsibility, then, evolved to neighborhood babysitting opportunities on weekends and special occasions. In my high school summers, I babysat three siblings, whose ages ranged from 4-12 years old; this was a Monday-Friday, 8:00-4:00 job. Once I left for college, I took over a nanny position for two boys, ages 6 and 12. I was expected to be at their house before the bus dropped them off, to cook dinner, to provide assistance with homework, and to chauffeur them to sports games and practices, friends' gatherings, or other memorable opportunities. Their work schedule suited my student schedule, as I was working towards my undergraduate degree.
