I am a stay at home mom. I am twenty years old. And I am looking for work I do from home. And babysitting fits perfectly! I love kids and love learning from them, as well as helping them learn and grow. Finding the right person to watch your kids isn't easy. There needs to be a connection. All kids are different, they are people. But most importantly they are people who want to learn. They want someone who they and their parents can trust. You can have the best nanny or babysitter in the country. But if the kid or the parent doesn't trust or get along with them it won't work. And I fully understand this. I like to spend time with the child/children and their parents before I can watch them, to ensure they feel comfortable with me. It's not easy for a child to stay with a stranger, or for a parent to trust a stranger to watch their kids. That's why I feel its important to meet and get to know everyone and for everyone to meet and get to know me.
