I also babysat a 4-year-old girl and 8-year-old boy that lived in my neighborhood occasionally when I was about 14. I also babysat for my mother's friend's daughter who was around 3 at the time.
My aunts and uncles would also ask me to babysit my cousins during the summer. I would spend weeks at a time at their house and watch their children during the day. My cousins are 7 and 9.
I also have experience with children in the classroom setting. My best friend and I taught preschool Sunday school all through high school for volunteer work, and it was a blast. I love everything about little kids. I feel like I am definitely still a kid at heart, and would be so happy to be getting paid to take care of children. I love having fun and making the kids happy, but at the same time am very protective and stern. Qualities that I believe make me a good caregiver.
