Did you post an ad looking for childcare and you asked the applicants "What things are very important to you when caring for children?" and this was one of the replies? If so, then I would not hire her. She sounds very immature and not experienced at all.

Okay, I reread the question and see that someone asked you this so I am assuming that you are thinking about replying back with that answer- DON'T! If I had asked that question and someone gave me that response, then it would have been an automatic disqualification. The most important things when caring for children are that they are in a safe, loving, and learning environment. Children will disobey you because that is there nature. You kindly correct them and guide them. If you expect children to obey you at all times then childcare may not be the best work for you.

They usually ask this question all the time. At least the clever parents. They want to know what is important for you during the baby sitting. they want to know about your thought to take care of a child. I usually say that the most important things are the safety and the smiles and cuddles. Because there need to be safe ans sound but they are children so I have to make sure they enjoy their time with me.
