VIDEO: Get the 411 on babysitting

Do you know how to handle a conflict between two children? Or how to control a rowdy child, or comfort a crying baby?  Each of these situations and many more will present themselves during your time as a babysitter.  In order to keep the child you are babysitting safe, as well as content and engaged, it’s important to know how to set boundaries and how to react if a problem arises.

A great new way the Red Cross is promoting the essentials of babysitting is through their new Babysitting Basics Online Course.  This 4-hour online training, for students ages 11 and up, provides the necessary skills and knowledge to responsibly care for infants and children up to 10 years of age.  This short but informative course will provide the babysitter the tools and information they need to properly care for infants and children.  Also available is our six hour Babysitter’s Training Classroom Course, providing the same fundamental information as the online course, but including hands on practice  and first aid training.
