I have been babysitting children outside of my younger siblings for 6 years. My last three years in high school was spent being a nanny for a family after school three days a week. I piked them up from school, would get them a snack, help them with homework, then ew would play outside before it was time for me to drop them off at their various activities. The same family would also have me watch their children on various other days/night where I was responsible for making dinner/lunch and putting them down to bed. I have watched children as young as 1 month to as old as 15 years old and am comfortable with all ages.
