I've worked with and for children for about 7 years now. My very first babysitting job was for a family with 2 kids. The oldest was a daughter, 9 years old and her 7-year-old brother. I worked with this family for a year and a half. After that, I worked for a family with one 8-year-old son for about another year and a half. My most recent work was just prior to my move to Los Angeles where I worked for a single mother of two sons. The oldest being 5, youngest being a month old newborn. I worked for this family for about three years, up until my move. I still occasionally care for these two boys when I return back to the Bay Area. For each family I cared for, I was responsible for everything from picking the children from school, homework, a light after school meal, light housework and tidying, to preparation for bed. For the newborn, I was responsible for him and his older brother between the hours of 8 a.m. to about 10 p.m.
