Babysitting is the practice of temporarily caring for a child. Babysitting is commonly performed as a job by teenagers for extra money. Babysitters are usually ages 12 and above. The type of work for babysitters also varies to the babies, from watching a sleeping child, changing diapers, to playing games, preparing meals, teaching the child to read, or even driving (if the age is right), depending on the agreement between the parents and the babysitter.
A babysitter should be paid at least the minimum wage.
