I started babysitting mostly in the summer but occasional weekends when I was 13 years old and by age 15 I was babysitting more frequently as well as overnight babysitting during the summer time. I babysat all through high school and off and on during college. From ages 20-22 I was a full time live-in nanny for three children, 2 boys ages 2 & 4 and 1 girl age 7. I also have 4 nieces that I look after often for my siblings, one of my nieces is almost 13 years old and spends about 3-4 days a week with me.
