Full-time hours

I babysat as a teenager. For a couple years, I was responsible for helping with my step-siblings. During the school year, I would make sure my step-sister got ready for school and I make sure she caught the bus. During the summer, I would take care of my step-sister and step-brother (who didn't live with us). When the weather was nice, I would always try to find activities to do outside with the kids. During my freshman year of high school, I frequently babysat for a family who had four kids. They were 2, 6, 7, and 9. I would spend the weekends watchng the kids during the day.
