  • Well my friends daughter is 11 and she took a babysitting course and she charges $2/hr(she lives in NH). She's even getting jobs that her older cousin used to do because she is licensed and cheap. I would personally look for CPR/FIRST AID certified. Babysitting course won't hurt. As far as older people like adults I would ask for references. Have them meet your children and see how your children interact with them.

  • ~ fireangle0310 ~ Wow, that is cheap!

    So where would I look for these CPR/FIRST AID certified sitters? Any suggestions on web sites or newspapers here in GSO?

    Or does anybody know one?
