Do’s and don’ts of babysitting

As an individual that has been a babysitter for multiple years, I have found that there are some things that every babysitter should know. Here is my advice for anyone thinking about babysitting in the future.

  • The main thing about babysitting is that you have to give them as much attention as possible, especially if there is more then one child that you are watching.
  • You also have to make sure every child is treated the same, and if there is any misbehaving you should let the parents know.
  • You should always answer the phone when the parents call at all times, and make sure you have a positive attitude at all times while on the phone.
  • If you’re going to be busy on a day you have to babysit let the parents know ahead of time. The same goes for being late. If you’re running a little late let the parents know.
  • If you plan on taking the kids anywhere make sure you let the parents know before you do so, and if you buy the kids anything make sure you get a receipt to show the parents what you bought for them, or just let the parents know that you brought the child something.

These is some basic advice for anyone who is looking to get into the babysitting world.

Basketball games

Every week there are either boy’s or girl’s home and away games for basketball. During home games for both teams cheerleaders cheer to support their peers and the school sport. Even though both teams have cheer support, there are still many differences between boys and girls basketball teams. We want to look at how we can make them equal.

Some of differences between the boys and girls are that more people go to the boy’s games than the girl’s games. A way we can change this is by promoting the girls basketball games more by making signs around the school, and getting people to talk about it on social media.

Another difference between the games is how the concession stands are only open at the boy’s games and not girl’s games. An easy way we can solve this is by opening the concession stand up for both girl’s and boy’s games.

Also, when the boys go against rivals like Central, the cheerleaders decorate boy’s varsity team lockers, so to make this fair when girls play against Central they should get the same treatment of getting their lockers decorated too.

Overall, we just want for both the teams to be treated equal and to be taken as seriously as the other.
