A babysitter looks after children in the childs own home as opposed to a childminder who works in their own home. Babysitting is an ideal way to make extra cash at a time when you would normally be sat at home watching TV. Of course, you will need someone at home to look after your own children. A reliable, flexible and trained babysitter is always in high demand. It is worth being trained in paediatric first aid, both for your own peace of mind and parents. Some colleges offer babysitting courses, however your own experience of being a parent will stand you in good stead. Finding work is usually by word of mouth, however there are babysitting agencies worth looking into, who will find the work for you. Sitters, is one such agency.
