Howdy Girls!

Babysitting is an awesome job that is perfect for both summer and during the school year! It can be a great job for learning some really valuable skills like responsibility, time, and money management and entrepreneurship (starting and running your own business).


Before you start working as a babysitter, find out what you should expect. Movies like Adventures in Babysitting, The Babysitters Club, and The Pacifier will give you babysitting ideas and some great dos and don'ts while having fun.


A must-have tip for becoming a great babysitter is to bring supplies for babysitting activities like books, games and movies. Here is a list of great movies to watch with kids: 

  • Finding Nemo
  • The Incredibles
  • Happy Feet
  • Toy Story
  • The Little Mermaid
  • The Princess Diaries
  • Ella Enchanted
  • Are We There Yet?


Here is a list of great books to read to the kids: 

  • Clifford the Big Red Dog
  • Goodnight, Moon
  • The Cat in the Hat
  • Stuart Little
  • The Giving Tree
  • The Nancy Drew series


Here is a list of great babysitting activities: 

  • Hide and Seek
  • Connect Four
  • Checkers/chess
  • Pictionary
  • Outburst

Babysitting is LOTS of fun, but when ya got two older sistahs, ya seem pretty left out of the "baby business." Now that one of my sistahs is married and in college and the other is almost graduated, the kids will come to me now! I am a loyal, honest 14 year old too, so am trustworthy and responsible. Yeah me! HINT, HINT: REMEMBER TO SMILE AND TALK TO KIDS AND PARENTS... SIMPLY BE FRIENDLY! THEY CALL AGAIN AND AGAIN! :)

Is it important to you whether your gynecologist is a man or a woman?
No, not at all, as long as the doctor is kind and gentle.
Yes, definitely. I’d be less embarrassed with a woman.
Yes, I think a woman would be more understanding.
No, as long as the doctor is recommended by people I know.
