This book is so helpful! I say the reveiw "Sugar, Spice, and NOT Everything Nice," and I was dissapointed. I thought "We can not be talking about the same book!" This book is SO helpful. I used it when I first started babysitting and now everyone on my block asks me to babysit. This book shows how to change a baby, what do do in an emergency, what to do if you get scared while babysitting, small easy to make snacks to make, and so much more! Please get this for your child if they are planning to babysit. It even shows what to do if someone is trying to get into the house your babysitting in. GET THIS BOOK! It's so totally rocks! It is a book that kids and parents have to love!
I just got certified as a babysitter and I thought I'd read some more about it! I got this book and it covered more than the class did! I covers everything you need to know! I like how it has game recomendations for different ages! This book rocks!
This is a really great handbook with a lot of info. There are sections in the book on deciding whether or not you're ready, mealtime, bedtime, when kids get scared, games and activities to play with the kids, changing diapers, when kids say, "But my mom lets me!", and first-aid and safety tips. There are even business and info cards that you can punch out. I recommend this book with a good first-aid book and, of course, a babysitting course!
"The Babysitter's Handbook" is a very informative book for beginning babysitters who need to know some first aid, games to keep the kids entertained, and tricks to make them go to bed. Not only that, it explains (with pictures), how to change a baby's diaper, and get them to end their tantrums. It also features tips from young babysitter's like you.
I bought this for my 11 year old niece because we were going to be bringing home a baby and she wanted to start baby sitting. I feel 11 is too young to baby sit, but it is a perfect age to be a mother's helper. So she is studying and training and I think this will help her.I gave 4 stars because this book is geared towards a younger girl, just breaking into child care but wouldn't be of much interest to older, established baby sitters. But it has good practical information and emphasizes responsibility.
This is a great resource to help back up what I've been trying to teach my eldest daughter about being a responsible caregiver. It's easy to read and organized in a way that's easy to reference. Even my 8 year old enjoys the book and follows the tips when her older sister is watching her and her other sister. Bought this book back in March, and it's made a huge difference in how my eldest daughter relates to her sisters as well as her young cousins and other small children
I've had this book in my own book collection for my kids and then when I taught a Babysitting class, I used excerpts in class. My students loved the way it was written. It's very succinct and contains the important information.
I recieved this book from my wish list after I decided I wanted to start babysitting. This is probably the book you want if you want to start. I haven't even read through the whole book yet but from already reading just chapters in it, this book has really helped me feel ready and excited to babysit! Sometimes, if something didn't work out that day for babysitting, I'll take a look in this book, and check up on what they suggest for different types of situations. This book covers practically everything you'll need to know, from changing diapers, to babysitting more than one child at once. One chapter I like includes ideas and suggestions for activities for different age groups. The only thing it doesn't include is major emergencies and how you take care of them (besides calling 911). If you want to learn those types of things, then I would reccomend taking a class for babysitting. I have found this book extremely helpful!!!
