Kids are often looking to earn some spending money on the weekends. Babysitting, for both girls and boys, is a great introduction to work, but it's also a very important responsibility.
This thoughtful, friendly, useful book will help any young sitter get off on the right foot with both parents and kids. It's crammed with great tips, good advice, and a thorough, non-condescending set of rules and expectations. Every sitter should own a copy of this handbook. (The publisher recommends this book for kids age 8-12, but the book will work for anyone, including adults.)
From School Library Journal
Grade 5-10?This fact-filled manual effectively covers the subject for both beginners and experienced teen sitters. Kuch makes it clear that the job entails "more than just watching children"; it requires feeding, clothing, playing with your charges, and keeping them and the house organized and safe. Sections include: Babysitting Basics, Fun and Games, Inside Scoop on Feeding & Bedtime, and Expect the Unexpected. Valuable and practical "Smart Sitter" tips provide addresses of pertinent organizations, hints on maintaining an appointment calendar, emergency practices and procedures, and insight into child psychology. Samples of emergency cards, actual games and songs, a list of suggested books to read aloud, healthy snack creations, and first-aid ABCs are offered. This title provides essential information on preparing young adults for a safe, successful, and rewarding experience with children. A small investment that will reap large dividends.?Patricia Mahoney Brown, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School, Kenmore, NY
