I started caring for children when I was 10 years old. I would take care of my 2 half sisters from when they were 3 months old until now. As they grew, I also started to take care of their neighborhood friends as well as the other neighborhood children. The most I have watched at one time was 6 children. I would also babysit at night or on the weekends for 2-3 kids at a time. As I grew older myself, I would still care for these children as I went into high school, I would still take care of my sisters every morning before school as well as after practice I would pick them up from daycare, and occasionally the neighbors kids. Going into college I didn't take care of the kids as much due to me going to a school 3 hours away. When I would come home for the weekends and during breaks I would jump back into my caregiver role without skipping a beat. Now I am 21 years old and have a son of my own. He is 5 months old and I am a stay at home mom.
