HOW TO GET HIRED:
It's very important that you know how to get hired. First, ask somebody you know, that way it's easier and they can spread the news that you're a great babysitter. And try and be as professional as possible. Maybe make a keynote or send an email on strictly what you will need to know about the child you will be taking care of, such as allergies, what they like to eat, games they like to play, all that stuff. And make sure they tell you why you're going to be babysitting them. If you strictly inform them that you need to know these things, then you'll seem very professional, and they might hire you again or tell their friends about you!
CONVINCING YOUR PARENTS:
Convincing your parents probably won't be that hard. All you really need to do is show them that you are responsible and you can handle somebody younger than you. Tell them that you are great with kids, you can make them food such as, you know, whatever, and things like that, so they absolutely can trust you and can start asking their close friends if they need a babysitter! :)
MAKING KIDS LIKE YOU:
I have a couple of ideas for the kids. It's always great that you bring fun activities for you and the kids to do. Maybe something educational, yet fun. I would bring a board game and maybe some arts and crafts you can do, like you can bring some construction paper, markers, stickers, things like that. Try and be creative with everything that you do.
