Babysitting is one of the most popular part-time jobs for teens, but caring for kids is no easy feat. Offering useful tips on everything from navigating naptime to negotiating pay rates, this funny, no-nonsense guide covers all the basics any babysitting hopeful needs to know and much more. This revised edition includes updated ideas for finding jobs, keeping kids-and yourself-safe, and handling behavioral challenges. Learn what to expect from kids ages 0 to 10, how to land (and keep) the perfect babysitting gig, what to do in situations ranging from dirty diapers to emergencies, and how to communicate with parents. Plus, read real-life stories from teens about their experiences on the job. "Advice for tweens and teens about getting and performing a traditional teen entry-level job: babysitting. This second edition of the 2012 original features up-to-date safety instructions, a modernized approach to behavior management, more inclusive language, and a fresh look. The text has been broken up into short paragraphs with bolded subheadings and presented with ample leading and spacing, which gives it a more inviting appearance. But much of the basic common-sense advice has been retained as well as the logical organization and examples from the experiences of real teens. The first section provides a self-assessment, an overall picture of what babysitting children of different ages is like, and tips for how to get started. A middle section covers essential skills for handling feeding, toileting, bathing, dressing, entertaining, and bedtimes as well as dealing with emergencies. Bondy strongly encourages getting first-aid and CPR training before taking on child care responsibilities. She offers excellent advice for handling challenging behavior. The text takes into account children with disabilities, encouraging sitters to communicate with parents about accommodations. A final section explains the business basics of babysitting, including a babysitter's rights and obligations. All this advice is conveyed with humor in a friendly and encouraging tone, suggesting a gentle, flexible, and responsible approach. With sensible and practical suggestions for a wide variety of situations, this is a welcome update."-Kirkus Reviews
