Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Children Learning to Babysit The Babysitting package was perfect for what it was. The package explained how to get a interview, how to get a resumé, etc. It also explained how to dress so your comfortable, and how to take care of the child of he/she has a nose bleed or injury such as a scrape,etc. The package comes with free printout, the printout are fact sheets on how to hold a baby, bottle and spoon feed infants and toddlers, changing a diaper, how to perpare a baby bottle,etc. I thought this Babysitting course was the perfect thing for teens and young adults. The course was filled with information which you don't have to read because the course is all videos and little learning games, which makes learning easier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good option for online class My daughter and I thought this was a good option for an online class since she was able to do this class at her own pace based on time available, rather than attending a 4 hr long class at a local hospital. Information provided was pretty basic but good review, regardless. Only thing that wasn't great about this online class were that the videos froze a lot while my daughter was watching them. We have pretty fast internet at home so I don't know if it was just our connection or an issue with the site but since the class consisted of a lot of videos, this issue became pretty annoying and disruptive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Teacher I bought this in February, and I loved it. It was so much fun and I wanted to do it forever. Also, my sister can use it when she is ready. And I can retake it when I feel I am out of practice. It was a great experience that taught me things I hope to carry maybe even beyond babysitting. I would DEFINITLY suggest it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Personal Thought of This Course It was a great online course that helped build up babysitting skills. However, when the course had completed, I could not go back and review the course

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Asssistance I love babysitting and this course made me feel I was in control what was going on inside and out of the home and the short quizzes at the end of each lesson is a great remember about what you just learned!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not what I expected I bought this course for my daughter to get certified, she took the course and honestly it isn't worth it. I expected so much more from this 9 months later she hasn't retained much of the course. My daughter has learned more from me than the course. Then to top it off you need to print out your own certificate, for the money that I paid I expected to have a nice one mailed to us that doesn't look like anyone could just make in a matter of minutes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantabulous I did this course and it was fine but it was also a little challenging but overall it was fun and now I can babysit without the parents worrying their child is going to die in my hands thank you American Red Cross

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible directions and not user friendly I signed my son up. Our email tells us to go to Red Cross.org when in fact you go to classes.redcross.org. There is a class password that they don't give you. I had to call support to find out. Also, it doesn't save your progress unless you log out, but this is not given in any instructions. (Found out by calling tech support). There is no "logout" option in the class module. His module still won't give him credit for his finished lessons. Going to call support a third time. Very frustrating and not impressed. Course content seems decent.
