Sitting sitch: Multiples madness

 
In your babysitting career, you will undoubtedly come across a situation in which you have multiple kids – sometimes even four or five at a time, and all by yourself. How do you deal with a situation like that?

 

First off, stay calm.

 

It’s not easy, but you can do it. The job will go better if you keep your cool, so take a deep breath and ooze confidence to keep those kids in line.

 

Go for a group

 

Get the kids involved in a group activity.  If they are the same age, or around the same age, you can find a game to play that will keep everyone occupied. Try hide and seek for the older kids, or bring out some play clothes and jewelry for dress up with the tots. Arts and crafts are also a great way to keep everyone entertained, no matter their ages or genders.

 

Keep it safe

 

You need to keep your eyes on all the kids, all the time. If you’ve got a rowdy bunch on your hands, keep meals a quick affair—think DIY sandwich assembly. If you’ve got older kids in your crew, ask them to keep an eye on their sibs, but keep ‘em all in your line of sight. If that means you have to sit them down at the kitchen table while you throw something in the oven, by all means do it.

 

Stay involved

 

Lettings your charges play alone is a no-no, but just because they might have a friend or sibs to entertain them doesn’t mean you can chillax on the couch. Put your phone away and jump into the fun, whether it’s a board game or make believe.
