I've babysat children in the past ranging from 9 months to 8 years. My care included doing a few chores around the house, preparing meals for the children, putting them to bed at a decent time, etc. I usually just babysat at night but I had a flexible schedule. The children and I got along very well and we created a bond over time that was considered a friendship to me.
