Would you let someone babysit your 3 young kids, without any experience?

Nope, I am very picky about who I have watch my kids. They need to know at least something about taking care of kids.

That is what I was thinking. I was told that I couldn't babysit 3 young kids because I have a daughter that is 15 months and their youngest one is around 15 months. I couldn't belive it. And its not like I would take my daughter.

Is she a family friend?? Maybe start her out as a mommie helper. If you can. That way you would still be home whils she gained experiance. If it was someone I didn't know personally, nope.

No, I was going to babysit her 3 children. But she said I couldn't because I have a daughter. Doesn't make any sence to me at all.

I just had family watch my dd.

That doesn't make sense to me either.

Nope. I won't just let anyone watch my kids. Mostly my family watches them, but if they can't then maybe I'll ask a friend. But mostly I would take them with if family cant

My first thought was that you meant a teenager with no experience.

I'll pretty much let any reasonable adult watch my kids, experience or not. If they are responsible humans, I don't tend to worry.

I don't leave my kids with teenagers or even college kids very often. This is where I tend to be picky.

But adults? If I know them, I don't care how much experience they have. In fact, most people get their first "practice" on my kids! Haha.
