MODMODMOD PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!I really want to take this babysitting course from redcross but i dont know how to tell my mom that i want to babysit.Last time, i left up a page about being a sitter on her laptop & she saw it & she was like,u know your not gonna do a course or babysit,right?that was like a year ago.How do i ask?also we are low on money & though they offer a course thats only 1 day & is cheaper $85it doesnt cover CPR & i think if were gonna pay for a course i might as well learn CPR while im at it cause thats not just forsitting.The one i want 2 take is $125 & is 2 days.HOW DO I ASK AND BRING UP THAT I WOULD LIKE TO BABYSIT?!also im only turning 12 in sept & im worried people will think im 2 young the courses age limit is 11 but still.i have a brother whos turning 7 so ive got experience with kids & newborns/infants & toddlers since ive wanted 2 be a docter since i was 5 & payed atten when he was little,but i can only stay home alone w/ him for like 10mins at most HELP!!!!




Hey girlie,

There's no easy way to bring it up, so jump right in and remember to take a deep breath, focus on what you want, and be mature about it. Just talk to her calmly - tell her you are still thinking about babysitting and would really like to do it. If she says no, ask her (calmly and maturely) why she isn't comfortable with the idea. Get all the reasons out on the table, and then you can both work together to compromise. Whether it's money, or because she thinks you're too young, or whatever it is - you'll find out and be able to address it! <3

MOD! Is it okay if I babysit when I haven't taken any classes or anything? I'm am good with kids and i am certified in cpr.




Hey girl, it really depends on the parents. In general, it's fine to do it, but some parents may be more comfortable with sitters who have had a class. Just try different families and see how they feel.

My friend and I satrted mother sitting together. That's when the mother is outside gardening or whatever and you saty downstairs in the basement with the kids. I love my friend like a sister, but I want to make more money and splitting up the pay for each job in half isn't helping. I don't meant to sound rude, but how should I tell her this and the parents of the kids who treat us like a package deal?

Hey missy, you could make posters that advertise your babysitting buisness. Post them in your neighborhood, school, local mall, church and drugstore. As long as you spread the word that you babysit to different places, you'll start getting some calls. Smile
