You're babysitting Mark age 11, Jamie age 9, and Liam age 1 and a half. Liam started chewing on Jamie's toy and she starts crying. Mark asks if he can walk a few blocks to his friends house. What do you do?
Say "some other time" to Mark, then yell at Jamie and Liam saying "you shouldn't be crying over some dumb kiddie toy!"
Say "some other time" to Mark, gently remove the toy from Liam's mouth, and cheer everyone up with some allergy free snacks and a movie/show.
Say "sure" to Mark and ignore Jamie and Liam.
Say "okay, but be back soon" to Mark and then seperate the toy, Liam and Jamie from each other.
Mark and Jamie start saying that they're hungry. Of course, you have to feed Liam too. Mark says he is not too hungry and doesn't want too much (but he'll eat anything), Jamie says she wants something sweet but not too sweet, and obviously, Liam can't talk. What do you give them for lunch?
Give Mark a chocolate bar, Jamie an orange and give Liam some broken crackers.
Give Mark a hot dog, Jamie a chocolate bar, Liam orange slices.
Give Mark and Jamie a hot dog each, and Liam some broken cracker pieces.
Give Mark a hot dog, Jamie a small fruit salad, and Liam some cut up pieces of fruit.
It's playtime! What do you do with the kids?
Watch tv and get the kids to play together.
Play a small game with Liam (like roll the ball), and have a little non-competitive competition with Mark and Jamie for drawing or anything like that.
Put Liam in the crib (even if it's not his naptime) and get the other kids to read while you play on your device.
Get all 3 kids to play together while you sketch or read and listen to music.
8:30! It's the time the parents said they want their kids to sleep. Jamie is bouncing on her bed, Mark locked his room door but you know all the lights are on, and Liam is crying. What do you do?
Yell at everyone to shut up then call the parents and tell them you can't handle it.
Tell Jamie to stop bouncing and Mark to unlock the door or you'll call the parents while you slowly rock Liam.
Go to Mark's door and say "Mark, you'll miss out on the story! Please come out." Then tell Jamie to stop jumping so that we can say a story together, and sit on the rocking chair with Liam.
Ignore the kids and play music on your phone.
The kids are finally in bed with their pj's and teeth brushed. You had 3 minutes until Jamie comes to you and says she had a bad dream. What do you do?
Go to her bed and tell her a story while you cuddle her.
Say "it was just a bad dream, go back to bed." and send her off with a drink.
Ignore her 'til she goes back to bed.
They are all asleep! Finally. But, after a day of hard work, you seem really tired and could use a nap. What do you do?
Take a small nap but set an alarm for 15 min. before the parents come.
Splash water on your face, jog so that you don't feel tired and start cleaning the house.
Drop on the couch. You'll hear when the parents come home, and wake up.
Just sit on the couch and chill, the parents can clean the messes.
The parents come home. How much do you charge?
5 $ an hour. It's just babysitting.
15 bucks an hour for each kid. They were reckless!
50 bucks. I hated babysitting!
20 $s per kid!
Would you be their babysitter?
Never. Again. In. My. Life.
Permanently! They were so great.
They will probably hire me again.
