I have been babysitting children since I was about 13 years old. I understand the responsibility that comes with watching someone else's children and I respect the fact that they have put the lives of their precious children in my hands. I absolutely love children and would love to watch kids full time, I thrive under the responsibility and the challenge that comes with understanding how different children respond to differing styles of babysitters. Not every child responds the same way, and I try to always understand the children in my care to make sure that I am giving them the best possible care.
