what age were your kids when you first left them with a teen babysitter?

We left our 3 kids with a friends daughter (she is 14 ) and a friend of hers... my friend and her Dh were there til about 8 and we picked the kids up about 10:30. This is the first time we left them with a teen sitter Ever and my kids are 8,4, and 2. They had a blast and asked more than once when they could go back! Even the 2 yr old kept saying I happy I happy! and pattnig the girl who was holding him on the back. No one was eager to leave...I am thrilled!

  • I have never found one that was willing to babysit. I would leave my kiddos with a teen. They are 6 and 7 now.
