Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When you put your baby in the hands of a sitter, you want to put your sitter in the hands of an expert. Certainly no hands are better qualified than those of Heidi Murkoff, co-author of What to Expect When You're Expecting and other bestselling childcare guides with over 22 million copies in print.

Marrying the reassuring authority and trust of all the What to Expect books with a lively, accessible voice, this guide contains everything a caregiver needs to know when minding a child, from newborn to preschooler. A mix of text, boxes, Q&As, and lists-plus plenty of blank space for parents to write in emergency numbers, specific instructions, and personal information about a child's likes and dislikes--it's the instruction manual that should be given to every caregiver, whether full-time nanny or weekend baby-sitter. It covers advice on feeding and diet, first aid, bathing an infant, potty-training, time-outs, rainy-day activities, sibling disputes, discipline problems, comforting a child, making play dates, even how to build a happy and healthy relationship with the child's family. Plus, it includes 61 of the most common questions sitters ask, from how to make mealtimes fun to what to do if you can't bond with the baby.

Synopsis:

Babysitting is one of the most popular part-time jobs for teens, but caring for kids is no easy feat. Offering a ton of useful tips, this funny, modern no-nonsense guide covers all the basics any babysitting hopeful needs to know, and much more. Includes:

  • What to expect from kids age 0 to 10
  • Tips for finding (and keeping) the perfect babysitting gig
  • Advice on how to deal with everything from emergencies to dirty diapers
  • Strategies for communicating with parents
  • Real-life stories from teens about their experiences on the job
PLUS: A babysitting personality quiz, helpful fill-in sheets, and kid-friendly recipes teens can use to make mealtime more fun!

Synopsis:

A mix of text, boxes, Q&As, and lists--plus plenty of blank space for parents to write in emergency numbers, specific instructions, and personal information--make this volume an instruction manual that should be given to every caregiver of children. Wire-O binding.

Synopsis:

DESCRIPTION When your baby is in the hands of a sitter, put your sitter in the hands of the experts. This wire-o-bound handbook contains--in short form--everything a caregiver needs to know when minding a baby, from feeding, dressing, bathing, and comforting to entertaining and making play dates. There is plenty of write-in space for parents to personalize the information with their own suggestions for baby's meals, favorite bath toys, books, and music, and awake activities. Plus 53 of the most common questions babysitters ask, including how to resolve disagreements with parents; how to say no when parents overstep the expectation line; how to ask the parents for a vacation; and what to do if you can't bond with the baby.
