MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD MOD ok so no matter how hard I try to babysit kids no matter how many flyers I put up and no matter how many times I ask my parents friends to babysit nobody ever wants me to babysit their kids and I don't look like a freak I look like any other 13 year old girl I'm even CPR certified and I've been to all the babysitting classes and I'm even a strait A student why doesn't anybody want me to be their babysitter?? And is ther anything that I can do to get them to want me to babysit their kids?

Hey girlie,

Do you act mature? Do you tell them all of your qualifications? Most likely, it's not because you "look like a freak" - it's just because you're talking to the wrong people, people who want older babysitters or who aren't comfortable with people watching their kids if they aren't family/super-trusted. No worries! You gotta stick with it, ask neighbors, spread the word through your friends, talk to other family friends, and try hard. It's never easy for anyone to start out, but you'll hit on a family that wants to give you a shot! Smile

Mod! I babysit two little brats! They think they can do whatever they want! There's a good pay so I don't leave. What can I do to teach them discipline without getting fired?

Hey Girl,

I know how frustrating babysitting can be! When I babysit, I make sure to stay with the same rules every day so that the kids get used to it. If I say no, I mean no and it's not going to be different if you ask me an hour/day/week later! Try to set strict rules for watching TV, going in time-out or having play dates. Kids are trying to get away with stuff, we all did, and they want to test you! Follow the 3 C's: Stay calm, confident and be consequent if they don't listen. Kids need rules to understand the difference between right and wrong and you all going have a much nicer time together once you get in the rhythm! Good luck Smile

Hey LadyyBugzz2188, get her to supervise you the first night you watch kids. Let her watch the way you handle and treat them. If you do a good job(which you will) she has to agree to let you start babysitting. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I want to start baby sitting, but my mom says i'm still to young and I won't take it seriously.I'm 14!! I wish i could find a way to convince her i WILL take it seriously. I need help. What should I do?? Thanks in advance!! Laughing Lynae P.

My mom doesn't approve of it it's soooooooooooooo sad and she won't let me see HUnger Games, which comes out on my BIRTHDAY!!

Hey smileybai13, get your friends and neighbors to spread the word too. Posting flyers around your community, school, and neighborhood might help too. Hope this helps! Xoxo

I am very very ready for babysitting, but there is nearly nobody to babysit! Everybody that I could, my mom has mentioned to their parents, and they all say they might but never do.
How do I grow my buisiness? Why would I even use business cards? I live in a city so idk how to do it, I dont want a ton of personal info out there but I doubt parents would consider me without knowing about me. Help! Lynae P.
