Growing up I had a younger brother that I looked after. My first actual babysitting job began when I was 14, I babysat a 7 month old and sometimes her older sister whom was 8. From there I randomly babysat friends' of the family's children, ages ranging from 7 months to 8 years of age. During college I babysat for a 7 month old and a 6 year old (two boys) during the summer of '10 and '11, 50 hours a week, M-F. I also helped a friend out by watching her 3 little girls, under the age of 3. I still occasionally babysit for the first family, and my friend when necessary. Currently I work. At this job I teach life skills to 4 mentally impaired "kids" ages ranging from 18-25, 3 boys and 1 girl. This includes everyday living tasks such as cleaning, cooking, grocery shopping, hygiene tasks, and individualized goals specialized for each individual. My full-time job is a quality assurance director at a care facility (specifically the mentally ill). There I provide direct care as well as dealing with the documentation aspect.
