Seattle Children's Better Babysitters Program Trains Future Baby Sitters

Seattle Children's Better Babysitters Program Trains Future Baby Sitters

A special program at Seattle Children's Hospital is training the next generation of babysitters. When you are old enough to baby-sit, it's a great way to make money and learn job skills, and Seattle Children's Better Babysitters program does just that and might even teach parents a few new tricks. "If you can clean up your room faster, then I can clean up my room, then we can watch a show," Carly Walsh, Better Babysitters instructor, said as an example.
