Beth J. - Seeking Work in Phila

I have had wonderful experiences babysitting.Over the past 40 years I have loved the families I have sat for. As a teenager, I primarily babysat for school age children and as I have aged,the ages of my charges has gone down. I see myself as playmate, supervisor and enforcer of the parents request. I try to listen more than I speak so the children feel seen and heard, the children are my focus. I always hope that my charges look forward to the next time I come.

As a young child I started helping my elderly grandmother with her mentally challenged daughter. I bathe her, fed her, made sure she had the proper medication, and made sure she was well groomed. I also used to baby sit my cousins a lot from birth to 10 years of age. Since having my own child I am very responsible, patient, and extremely loving.
