I have been babysitting since I was 12 years old and have worked with children as young as 3 months to as old as 14. I have babysat for many families and have never had a complaint. Almost all of the families I babysat for, have had me return and said that I relate very well to children. I have also had a hand in looking after my youngest cousins (5 and 8) for months at a time so I am able to adapt to all situations thrown at me on a day to day basis.
