Descriptions du produit

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.

Richie's Picks: THE WHAT TO EXPECT BABY-SITTER'S GUIDE 10 mars 2004
Par N. S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
If a young adult is interested in learning the wrong way to care for neighborhood kids or younger siblings, then I highly recommend reading SILENT TO THE BONE or KING OF THE MILD FRONTIER.

But if that young person would like to build a rep as a professional, safe, fun, and even educational baby-sitter, and make some bucks in the process, then THE WHAT TO EXPECT BABY-SITTER'S HANDBOOK is the book for them to read.

Providing practical information derived from the work of Piaget and Erikson without ever once having to mention them, this compact, well-organized guide will be equally beneficial to expectant teen parents, prospective aunties and uncles, and anyone else who is interested in the down-to-earth basics of child development and a wealth of information on keeping young kids happy, healthy, and engaged.

Beginning with "The Parent Connection," and "What to Expect at Every Age," the author provides a solid chapter in the areas of "Feeding," "Playing," "Going Out," " Bathing," "Sleeping," "Behavior & Discipline," "Caring for Siblings," "Baby-Sitting Basics," and "Health & Safety." Within each of these chapters Ms. Murkoff details the particulars of the various ages and stages.

She concludes the book with "Our Children, Our Home: A Fill-In Section for Parents," which allows space for parents to list particulars about their preferences and their child's likes. For instance, in the "playing with" pages, there are lines for favorite games, books, and songs, as well as television shows and videos that are permissible for the child to watch, and play date guidelines.

"In ev'ry job that must be done
There is an element of fun
you find the fun and snap!
The job's a game" --"A Spoonful of Sugar" from Walt Disney's Mary Poppins

I am particularly impressed by the amount of focus the author devotes to communication with both the parents and with the child. I am similarly pleased with the valuable Behavior & Discipline section. And, as a former childcare professional, I am delighted with Murkoff's repeatedly providing all sorts of strategies for turning routine moments into educational experiences for the child, whether it be activities that are part of feeding, playing, bathing, or cleanup.

Undoubtedly there are untold numbers of childcare professionals and teachers whose careers begin when they take care of neighborhood kids after school or on Friday nights. Reading THE WHAT TO EXPECT BABY-SITTER'S HANDBOOK will provide these teens with the tools they need to make their early experiences safe, fun, fulfilling, and profitable, and could thus well make all the difference in the lives of these young caregivers as well as the kids with whom they are entrusted.

Just an ok reference 1 décembre 2005
Par S. Lancaster - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales Achat vérifié
A big fan of the "What to Expect" series, I purchased this book for my 12 year-old daughter who is planning to begin babysitting soon. I immediately noticed that it is spiral bound (as stated in the description) and seems pretty flimsy, like the pages could very easily tear out. Upon closer inspection, I was disappointed to see lots of information for nannies or even daycare workers in the book and very little useful information for a beginnning preteen/early teen sitter. I would look into other babysitter handbooks before purchasing this one - it is definitely not up to par with other books in this series.

Great for Nannies, Not for Aunts 19 mai 2012
Par Rose V. Butler - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
I borrowed this book from the library in hopes it would help me out with some issues I've had babysitting my niece, which I do on the occasional weekend. It is interesting, and it gave me a few ideas, but it was clear from the start that the book is geared toward full-time babysitters and nannies. It doesn't even mention the weekend/evening out babysitters like me, and it only covers ages 0-6 (my niece is only 10 months, but if she were older, I would have been even more disappointed). It does have a few good ideas when it comes to playtime, bath time, and going out, but it didn't help at all with my niece's getting-to-sleep-in-a-strange-bed problem.

Overall, it's a great book for nannies, but not for me.

Thorough explanation which comprehensively covers kids 8 août 2004
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales
In What To Expect Baby-Sitters Handbook, Heidi Murkoff informatively surveys over sixty questions that responsible baby-sitters tend to ask most, ranging from daily routines and feeding, to safety and play-date activities. Baby-sitters will enjoy this thorough explanation which comprehensively covers kids of all different age ranges -- including just how to best handle newborns on up. Teens especially will find these important tips to be invaluable.
Pretty Good 19 mai 2012
Par Drummer-girl97 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Couverture à spirales Achat vérifié
This is a good book! I have read other babysitting books and I have to say that this isn't my favorite. I do like how it was very informative and covered a wide range of topics. I also think it was easy to read and I liked the layout of the pages. My only real issue with it was that it isn't really a book for beginning babysitters. I doubt that parents will ever want the girl next door to be dropping their children off at play dates and such. In my opinion it was more focused towards being a nanny(which it does say in the description that it was for both nannies and babysitters). On the other hand, this book covered topics that I haven't seen in other books that I've read such as bathing the baby and how to make fun things to play with. I actually ended up buying the book anyways because it was so enjoyable to read. So, yes, this book is good, and I would probably recommend it to someone else. I just think it was for more experienced babysitters and nannies than beginning ones.
