Older siblings often have to look after their younger brothers or sisters when Mom or Dad has an errand to run. Kids looking forward to summer vacation may also be looking for ways to earn a little spending money while they’re out of school.
Whether you’re watching the neighbors’ kids or members of your own family, it’s important to know what to do if an emergency arises and you’re the caregiver.
The American Red Cross and Henderson Family Y are teaming up to offer a babysitting training session on Monday, May 29 at the Y, 380 Ruin Creek Rd.
Topics include infant and child care, safety standards, emergency care, age appropriate activities, behavioral recognition and babysitting business basics.
This training session costs $50 and is designed for youth between the ages of 11 and 15. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Registration ends May 28. Participants should bring a bag lunch.
