I started babysitting when I was in fifth grade, granted then it was considered mother's-helper because obviously leaving your child in the hands of a fifth grader isn't the best idea, so a parent would stay home and get work done while I entertained their child. I've always been pretty good at caring for kids. I like to feel depended on and I'm also quite childish which definitely helps me get along with kids better than others. Now, I am 18 and have watched up to 4 kids at a time for as long as 8 hours. The children I've watched have aged anywhere from newborns to 12-year-old.
