Is teenage babysitting really demanding?

Teenage Babysitting Requirements

Teenage babysitting is a harder job than many people realize. It must be understood that teenage babysitting is not a job where you can spend time on yourself, call your friends and eat from the fridge. As a sitter you have a lot of responsibility because you are taking care of a human life. Children take a lot of attention so this job requires 100% of your focus. Make sure the children are your top priority while you are babysitting. Engage them in activities and respect their opinions, without giving in to their every whim.
