I've been babysitting for different families since I was 13 and have many references. I've babysat children of all ages including babies and newborns. I am a firm believer in that children should always be engaged in something worthwhile and interesting. I love doing crafts, being outside, and cooking/baking. When I'm babysitting, sitting in front of a TV simply isn't an option! Children need to use their imagination, and they need people to encourage it!
