Question

How old do you have to be to get a Red Cross babysitting license?

I want an afternoon job to pay my cell phone bill. I 'm 11 and i'm not sure how old you have to be to get my babysitting license. I also want to know were is a good place to advertise. I will probably babysit 3-6 year olds and I am very responsible and I love small children. I will probably ask $6.00 an hour and $30.00 for the whole week deal. Is that a good charging price?

Well, im considering getting my babysitting licence. I am 12 and I DONT think its too yong at 11 , it kinda depends the kind of child. Like I remember when I was a tot and my mom was constantly getting this one sitter and i loved her so much... she started sitting us at 12 and didnt even have her licence. Maybe like to PROVE to your parent your responsable offer to watch a child that you know and with supervision, you maybe trusted more. Oh and your advertising thing you can doa newbspaper. Inside restraunts theres always bilbord things where you pin ur bizz card up.

you have to be 11-14 to get your red cross certificate. Due to your age i don't know many parents who would let you babysit their children. They more like the highschoolers who actually know what there doing.

I'm a parent and I would not let an 11 yr old watch my children.
You might want to offer a pet sitting service first to build your reputation in being responsible and you can make a little money doing that.
