Ok, so I saw this flyer in my neighborhood and this 12 year old girl in the 7th grade was looking to become a babysitter. She introduced herself as Audrey and explained that she is a very "mature" and "responsible" seventh grader who makes straight A's. She mentioned that she enjoys taking care of small children and would like to provide babysitting services after school and over the summer to busy parents.
I'm curious to know what you all think? Is Audrey too young to watch your children? If she is...why do you think so? If you believe that she isn't...then how young is too young in your opinion?
***Personally...my son has never had a sitter that wasn't his grandparent or his father. I am uncomfortable letting even an adult (non-familial) watch my child.
