According to Ralph M. Shenefelt, General Manager of the American Safety & Health Institute (ASHI)
"While experience is important, it's not enough that someone has been watching children for years or that they have raised their own children. People who watch children should be professionally trained."
In this course you will learn how to become a great babysitter that any child will love to have and that parents will want to keep calling back again and again.
Do you think babysitting for years is all that it takes to be great? Unfortunately the answer is A BIG NO. Experts just simply don't agree to this analogy at all. As per child safety experts, having raised one's own children is no criteria for being good at babysitting other children. Babysitters must be professionally trained.
This is what we kept in mind while designing this course for you in the most professional manner. It's just two hours of training that will turn you into the most loved and called for babysitter.

Babysitting Tips and Warnings
I am a child care professional with 7+years of quality experience watching children. I've taken care of and become an expert of ages 2 to 12 years of age. While watching those children I helped engage them in a healthy learning environment that not only helped improve their personal mental and physical growth, but also helped them become well rounded adults. With my experiences I now hope to help train people to become better babysitters, because when you are more educated in raising children, you can improve the life of everyone that child ever meets. I have also been studying fashion for over 8 years. I always stay up to date on the current trends. I have studied clothing modifications for over 5 years. I love teaching do it yourself classes and have been doing so for 2 years.
