During my adolescent years, I babysat for several families. The age of the children ranged from infant to 13 years. Housekeeping, light errands, and meal prep were all included. I have a bachelor's degree in child life, and I will soon be finishing my masters in early childhood education. To clarify, child life is working with hospitalized children and their families to reduce stress, maintain normal growth development, and teach/prepare children for procedures.
