PBS Kids GO! It's My Life
Babysitting

Discussion questions for kids to bring up with adults

I think I'm ready to start babysitting. Can we talk about it?

If you think I'm ready, can you help me advertise and promote my babysitting business?

If you don't think I'm ready, why do you feel this way?

What can I do to show you that I'm mature and responsible enough to care for kids?

Did you babysit when you were younger? What was it like? What was easy, and what was hard?

Do you think babysitting is the same as when you were young, or do you think things have changed? If so, how?

Can I count on you to help me develop the skills I'll need to care for kids?
