My brother is 10 years younger than me, so when I was a teen, I was responsible for watching him while our parents were busy. While I have experience handling him as a baby, most of my experience comes from babysitting him from age 4 or so. Our time together included all kinds of activities, both sports and intellectual, feeding him, and sometimes putting him to bed. When he started school, I also helped him with homework and any creative projects. I have also babysat the neighbor's kids, who are about the same age as my brother. During the last academic year I babysat a 5-year-old Catalan boy a couple times a week. I had to take him to and from the nursery, give him lunch and put him down for a nap. Sometimes I'd have to babysit his brothers, too. I really enjoyed the time spent with the kids and was proud to see how much they learned in English during our time together.
