My babysitting career started when I was in sixth grade. Since then I continued babysitting during high school after school, weekend nights, and staying over while away parents went away on weekends. During the summers I live with a cousin who has four children. My responsibilities included taking the kids to and from camp, practices, supervising swimming at their club, and getting meals together. I also would travel with them on trips. During my four years of college I babysat for another family between classes. I would get the kids breakfast, dress them for school, drop-off/pick-up until parents got home from work. I am currently still babysitting for this family and have added on a new family with an infant son. My responsibilities include getting breakfast, a bath, dressed, lunch, as well as making sure he is on the right stage of development for his age. We take walks in the warmer weather. Besides my regular weekday schedule babysitting, I babysit for these families and others in my free time when needed. I have a total of five families I babysit for regularly, the largest recently had their fifth baby. She is 8 months old. Of these 5 families, one provided me with a car to take the kids to their activities throughout the summer. I use my own to take them to and from school.
