Babysitting Tips- How To Be The Worlds Greatest Babysitter- How To Make Money As A Kid
How to Babysit a Young Child
Permission.You have to get permission. Whether it's from your parents/guardian or the child's parent/guardian, you need permission.
Contact.After you find a child to babysit, have the parent of that child get your phone number, house number, or any number that they can contact you with.
Transportation.Make sure you have a way of getting to the child's house. Whether it's walking, or driving make sure that you get there on time so that the parent will not miss the important thing that they have to do that day.
Activities.Make sure the child has games/ or you can bring games for them to play with. You want the child to have a good time so that the parent is satisfied and may ask you to babysit again.
Emergencies.To be safe, keep any sharp or dangerous objects away from the child, and before the parent leaves, ask for any emergency numbers that you can call if something does happen.
Rules.Before you start your babysitting experience with the child, make you tell them the rules so that your experience with that child is not bad.
All in all, have fun!Make sure you spend time with the child to make sure he is happy that you are his babysitter. Sometimes the parents have cameras in the house, so don't do anything bad. If the parents see that you like the child and the child likes you, they might pay you extra.
QuestionWhat should I do when the young child cries for his parents?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTell the child that his parents will be back soon, but let him cry and calm himself down. If the child keeps crying, call his parents and see if their voices will soothe the child.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I put a child to bed?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTire them out and have them drink a hot drink, like warm milk. Follow their usual bedtime routine, as it tells their body to start going to bed.Thanks!
QuestionI'm 11 years old and want to make money for the summer. Is babysitting a good way to make money?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIt's good pay. Don't expect to earn hundreds of dollars for babysitting one child one time, but if you babysit well, you may earn a good bit over time.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I know when a child is sick?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerSometimes a child might keep that from you. But usually they will tell you, especially if they throw up. Pay attention if the child doesn't eat or uses the bathroom often. Ask the child if you can feel their forehead to check for fever.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if the child tells me to go away?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerStay calm. Just tell the child, "I can't go away, your parents trusted me to stay here and watch you while they're gone." Whatever you do, don't "go away" and leave the child alone. It's up to you to be responsible and make sure the kid doesn't get into any trouble.Thanks!
QuestionI'm nine years old, and I really want to babysit. I look like I'm twelve and act like it, too. Am I too young?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou are probably too young, even if you look like twelve and act like it. You have to have experience with kids and being responsible for whatever they do. However, it is up to your parents if they think you're responsible or not. You might start babysitting early if they think so. If there are babysitting classes available in your area (do a Google search to see), it would be a good idea to take one so that you can be prepared.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if the child is arguing with me?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTell them to stop arguing or else they have to go on a time out or their privileges will be taken away (TV, devices, dessert, etc.). You can also choose to send the child to bed early if they're still being difficult after you've taken away privileges.Thanks!
QuestionHow do I watch a kid while I'm young?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTry being a mother's helper first if you never had a chance to take care of a kid/toddler.Thanks!
QuestionWhat if there is only a couple years difference between me and the child I am sitting for?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerJust treat him/her like you treat your friends. Don't be too controlling. If they have younger siblings, you can make them feel important by asking them to help you out in small ways, like, "Could you ask your brother what he wants for dinner?" or, "Would you mind reading your sister a story before bed?"Thanks!
QuestionWhen I babysit two kids, the youngest kicks and complains, the oldest teases him, and when I tell them to stop, they say I'm not their mom. What do I do?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerTell them that, though you are not their mom, their mom did put you in charge and they must respect your rules. If they still won't listen to you, give them a consequence, like a time out, or the loss of a privilege, or send them to bed early. If they get really out of control, call their parents.Thanks!

- Keep an eye on the child if they are young just in case something happens to them.
- To make the child fall asleep faster, pretend to go to sleep in front of him/her. turn out the lights and turn off the TV, and the child will have no choice but to go to sleep.
- If the child doesn't listen to you, give them warnings like -strike one, strike two, and strike three- but by strike two they might listen.
- Keep an eye on what they are watching. Some commercials are not kid-friendly, and even though they might think you're being mean and bossy, you should control the remote(s). That way the kids won't accidentally change the channel to something that's not safe.
- Follow the parents instructions. Make sure the child is fed and goes to sleep at their bedtime. Keep an eye on them, checking every 30 minutes or so once they're asleep to make sure they are safe. Keep doors locked to keep you and the child safe. Clean up any mess you've made. The parents have trusted you in the house alone so cleaning up is a decent thing to do. Don't use any chemicals that could harm the child.
- Don't leave any open fires on the stove.
- Don't be distracted by your phone or iPod, etc...
- Don't leave the child alone if they are young.
- Don't invite anyone over unless you have a baby-sitting buddy. Remember, it's not your house, and if it is, you're working.
