I am 12 years old and next summer when I am 13 I would like to start babysitting kids in my neighborhood for a job. I have a few Qs for you. First of all, do you think 5 or 6 dollars and hour is an acceptable price? And, I was thinking that I could babysit kids ages 1-10. Is that a good age range for a 13 year old? I have a 2 year old sister and a 5 year old brother that I babysit often. I've been helping with them both since they were babies. I am also CPR certified and my mom agreed to let me take an online Red Cross babysitting class sometime before I start. Do you think I'm ready?
Hey girlie, I think $5-10 is a reasonable hourly rate. Ages 1-10 is probably good. But if it's only a 10-year-old, you might feel a little uncomfortable being so close in age. I think you're definitely ready! By the time you're 13 you'll be totally ready to babysit!

1.) Be certified as a child care provider by states, counties and cities you work in.
2.) Carry professional business insurance.
3.) Get a signed contract regarding how much you are to be paid, when payment is due, where your responsibilities begin and end and other common ambiguities.
4.) Be certified in First Aid for Children by the Red Cross.
5.) Present your credientials to potential clients and be prepared to forego work for clients who balk at signing your contract.
