9780395665589: The New Complete Babysitter's Handbook

Taking care of other people's children is a job many young people enjoy doing and do well. It's a big responsibility, too. Today's babysitters need skills and awareness that past generations didn't dream of. This comprehensive handbook offers sensible, timely, upbeat advice on practical matters from changing a diaper to answering the phone, and on such sensitive issues as dealing with a parent who may be intoxicated and babysitting for children with chronic illnesses. Suggestions for games and activities indoors and out, meals, bathtime, and bedtime address the specific needs of infants, toddlers, and older children. Appendixes discuss minor mishaps and emergencies, how to tell which is which, and what to do in every case. All health and safety information has been reviewed by health-care professionals. Designed to go along in pocket or purse, with checklists for at-a-glance reference, "The New Complete Babysitter's Handbook" contains everything a great babysitter needs to know in a handy take-along size. Every babysitter and parent should have this book as a constant companion.
