As a babysitter, safety must be your top priority. You are responsible for the children under your care at all times and it’s your duty to protect them from any dangers that may present themselves.
Dangers for children can be physical, like road traffic, choking hazards, sharp objects, or hot water, but they can also take more hidden forms such as stranger danger, food allergies, and electrical shock!
Your personal safety is also important. Babysitting work often includes meeting unfamiliar people, commuting late at night, and sending or receiving money online, each of these carry real risks that can’t be ignored.
