How to Be a Perfect Babysitter

Aug 17, 2007
It feels good to know that you provide with an excellent and reliable babysitter service. It is normal for a babysitter to baby-sit for the same household frequently and this may be beneficial for all the parties.

From previous knowledge, the parents would feel contented if they leave the children in your hands, as they know that you are capable of good babysitter service. They can, thus, be able to have a comfortable and pleasant time outside.

Now the question is: what you should do so that the family will look for your babysitter service yet again?

Remember to watch out for the fundamental principles of babysitter service.

Report to the job on time and dress properly. The perfect type of clothing would be a clean sweater and well-ironed jeans since you may go up the stairs unexpectedly or crawl on the floor with the kids. Keep your shoes near the door and cut your nails short and clean.

When in their home, act politely. You should leave the home they way it was when you entered it. The parents may ask you to help yourself with a snack. Make sure that you place everything in order after the snack.

When the children have gone off to sleep, place the books, DVDs and toys in their original location. Shake the cushion and clean the room.

Remember to clean the place if any thing spills. Always inform the parents if any thing in the house has been damaged or broken during your babysitter service.

Always get a number where you can reach the parents and also ask for the time at which they are likely to come home. Call up the parents as soon as possible if the kid is injured or falls ill during the duration of your babysitter service. You will not be held responsible for the illness or accident but they will blame you if you don't inform them.

Always remember that you are to do your work of babysitter service there. If the children have gone to bed, you can watch TV or listen to music but keep the volume down. It is important that you will be able to hear the children reach out for you or when they are upset. Look out for them every once a while to ensure that they are safe and sleeping calmly.

At the time of the arrival of the parents, inform them about any funny incident that took place. You can set their mind at rest by telling them that everything is under control. If things aren't fine then tell them precisely what happened and do not be biased.

You can continue with the same family if you maintain a high standard. Moreover, they will also recommend you for babysitter service to other families.
