I've been involved with child care since I was about 11 or 12 years old. As an older sister, I was trusted to care for my younger brother who is 5 years younger than me. From the time I was around 13 years old, our family friends began to rely on me as an occasional date-night babysitter for their younger children, and when I entered high school, I began working regularly with my middle school soccer coach's children. I cared for his 4 children (between the ages of 10 months and 10 years old) once or twice a week after school until one of the parents came home from work. My main responsibilities were engaging the children in activities (outdoors when the weather permitted) that kept them away from the TV, video games, and computers; I also occasionally drove the children to piano lessons and/or prepared meals for the children.
