Just a babysitter?

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on May 17, 2019 5:32:00 AM

The other day I was watching crap TV, "Hot Bench" and one of the cases was about a caregiver and one of the judges said: "sorry to say this but you're just a babysitter". I was offended simply put. Why does that term "just a babysitter" make me hot? Well, as a babysitter you are in charge of a life....a LIFE! That doesn't constitute a "just" title. I believe that if you want quality childcare you need to treat and expect babysitters to be professional. As an owner of a babysitting agency I treat all of my babysitting team as professionals, and I expect them to represent my company in a professional way.

Children, money and competition

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on May 3, 2019 6:14:00 AM

In my lifetime I've seen so much change in the way money is viewed by children, as well as competition shared within adult and child minds. I don't think the changes have been healthy for our children. I'm actually not sure myself about healthy attitudes about money; but I do think the example of parents in how they treat money, and competition is what will have the most impact on your children.

Do you need more than a babysitter?

Let's take a peek at your day: wake up (really early because you need to get ready and organize yourself before the kids get up), make sure the kid's clothes are ready to go. When you do that you have to go into their cluttered rooms and you make a mental note that you need to get it organized AGAIN. You then go to the kitchen to figure out breakfast and pack lunches/snacks for the kids, when you look in the pantry you find that you are so low on snacks that if you don't go to the store today the kids will have to share the last bag of goldfish tomorrow for lunch AND snacks; you might have more but you can't find them due to the state the pantry is in (note to self organize pantry this weekend along with soccer, gymnastics, taking the kids out for a play date). You wake up the kids with coffee in hand, and they clump to the kitchen, sit down and proceed to complain that you are out of their favorite cereal, and while the kids get all riled up they then spill their orange juice on their school clothes that they put on BEFORE breakfast which you don't like them to do, but choose your battles, you go back to their rooms only to find that drawers are in complete disarray, there are more clothes on the floor then in closets and drawers, you then make another note that you need to sort out clean laundry to dirty laundry because we all know that the clothes on the floor aren't all dirty but, you need to find a clean shirt now, and you're finding that impossible. This is only your morning. Needless to say the rest of the day is just a chain of events that keep you off balance, and not just today but nearly every day.
