My first official job was babysitting. I took dance lessons 4-5 days/nights a week, so it wasn’t often, but I did make decent money and enjoyed being around the kids. Before I was ever allowed to babysit though, my mom required me to take a first aid/babysitting class at the Red Cross. It was informative and I learned to to give CPR, what to do in an emergency and more.
Now that I’m a parent, I am a little more careful and proactive with those we choose to babysit our children. As a planner, I like to have as much information ready for the babysitter. I know how kids can be and try to get their way, so the more I can write out beforehand, the better. This printable Babysitter’s Checklist from Brookdale House will have you so organized your sitter will have an easy time. This pack includes pages to list allergies for each kid, emergency numbers, instructions, games for the sitter and more!
