Babysitting
Babysitting (Former Employee), Thorold, ONMarch 17, 2014
Pros: being with children
Cons: not enough money, hours or a steady job
I baby sat for quite a few years for family members and family friends. I enjoy working with children but it wasn't a steady job, it was to help out. It made me a more responsible teenager taking care of younger children, cooking for them, cleaning, bathing them etc.

First time job
Babysitting (Former Employee), Orillia, ONFebruary 2, 2014
A good first time work experience. It was great to look after children as a job because they're learning so much as they're growing. Working with children taught me a lot about them and how to take of one alone.

Fun, Long, Enjoyable
Babysitter (Current Employee), Brantford, ONDecember 4, 2013
I would go to on a Friday or Saturday and do a 20 hour shift. I would cook and clean for two kids.
I learned about patients and how to keep a well organized home.
The hardest part of the job was being told no and handling tantrums.
The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the kids playing and seeing them happy.

Developped my sense of responsibility and a lot of fun
Babysitter (Current Employee), St. Catharines, ONJune 10, 2013
When I babysit, I always spend my time with the kids and play fun activities with them. I feed them when needed and put them to bed at the desired time of the parents. I make sure that the house is locked and secured as well. I started babysitting when I was 12 years old and babysitting has helped me grow into a more responsible teenager because of – more... the many duties I had to do (cleaning, cooking, entertaining). I love working with kids and also cleaning up a little bit after the kids for when the parents get home. Getting the children to go to bed at a certain time would be the hardest part of the job. – less

Fun lovable child and kind parents
Babysitter (Former Employee), Oshawa, ONMay 16, 2013
Pros: home was close to job
Cons: diaper changing
I would arrive about 5-10 minutes before the parent had to leave for work, then I would play with the child and cook him good meals and send him to bed before his one of his parents got home.

I learned how to care for a child and how to be more patient

There was no management as this was in a private home, but the parents were very kind.

The hardest – more... part of the job was when the child would not listen or would not go to sleep

The most enjoyable part of the job was that I got to spend some time with an adorable kid – less
