I also had the pleasure of babysitting a family friends 6-year-old daughter. I was always the first one they called. I would make sure she got food to eat, not too many sweets, and we would keep TV to a minimum by playing board games, dress up, barbies, coloring, etc. if I had to stay late nights, I would put her to bed, then clean up the house.
I also have a 7-year-old little brother and a 3-year-old nephew, I have had plenty of experience changing diapers, and putting kids to sleep, entertaining them and keeping them happy.
most people say I should go to school for teaching because " I'm so good with kids"
