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 5 out of 5 by from Very Imformative My mom decided to sign me up for this class because I expressed an interest in babysitting. She wanted to make I was prepared to take care of kids and had the proper training. She found the American Red Cross babysitting class and entrusted them in making sure I was properly prepared. I will have to say The Red Cross babysitting class really informed on everything I need to know about babysitting such as, how to pick up an infant, feed an infant, change a diaper, and what to do when a child gets injured or is choking. I would definitely recommend the American Red Cross to parents or teens looking for babysitting training. They answered an questions I had and made every lesson clear.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected, still okay. I did this some time ago in order to help improve my resume as a babysitter. This isn't the rough course with testing and questions like I thought it was. It's a 3d game with less than impressive graphics. It was informative, and helpful, however: despite it's less than professional feel. I do wish that some sort of certificate was given to you as a sign of completing the course; but a home-made looking poster you could print out and sign was the only thing that you receive as proof. All and all it was helpful, but not satisfying considering the money spent.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not really impressed I decided to take this class because I want to start a baby sitting career during my high school years. For an "advanced" class this was pretty easy. I did read the reviews before purchasing but I just thought these people had training before and they personally found it easy. After buying for that price I do regret it. The printable certificate does not look like something someone could just print out like others say because of the code in the bottom right. I wouldn't say it was a total loss. At first, I knew nothing about babysitting but now I know what to do in case of common kid emergencies. I feel like I did not get what an advanced class should offer though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really informative and fun! This was a really fun course to take, I learned a lot, and I feel much more prepared to babysit now. I really enjoyed the the whole thing, and I would definitely recommend this to a friend. I am 14 years old, and I thought that it would be very boring, but I was wrong. There was a test at the end, which I really liked. You could also print out information sheets which was very helpful.

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.
