I have babysat in the past for family and friends. I would babysit regularly for a family while I was in my second year of college. They had a daughter who was 3 years old and a son who was 6 years old. I would care for the 3 year old alone until the bus came from school and then I would help the son do his homework and eat. In the summer I would take them to the park. Ever since I was younger I would care for my younger cousins- making sure no one played in the street when we were out, making sure everyone was okay when the adults were inside. I've always watched kids in elementary school and middle school, with responsibilities of helping with homework, having dinner and driving them to and from sports practices and concerts. I'm mindful of the parents discplinary wishes.
