How To Get Something From Your Younger Sibling

Do you want something that your younger sibling has? Well have no fear! I am here to show you how to get it. This depends on what age your sibling is. If your sibling is 13-20 years, well then this is useless to you. Goodbye! But if your sibling is 4-12 years, then read ahead!

The first step to “borrowing” your sibling’s whatever is to get something cooler. Now, if you don’t have anything cooler, then make what you have LOOK cooler. This is simpler than you think. Because you are the older person, the younger person will want what you have if they think it is cooler. So all you have to do is make it seem like it is cooler!

How To Make Your Thing Look Cooler:

1. Say “Hey! Look what I found! My ____”
2. Play with it or take it everywhere you go (if possible)
3. Say “Did you know that this ___ has made me cooler?”
4. Say “I love you” to it every time she/he is there

Now if you are successful in making your younger sibling think that your ___ is cool, then you are ready to go on to the next step. The next step is to trade your ‘cool’ thing for what you want from your younger sibling. Now to do this successfully, you first need to get you and your sibling together in a room (with the thing you want). Then you ask “Do you want to make a deal?” You say this in the most serious way possible. If they say no you say, “Too bad, you were going to get my ___.” After you say that, they should say yes. If they still say no, then you can’t continue. When they say yes, you say “How about I give you my ___ and you give me your ___?” Now, if they say OK, then you’re done! Congratulations!! If they say no, then you walk away like you don’t care and say OK. Then maybe they’ll say Ok. But if they don’t… then sorry.

Well I guess this is …..
GOODBYE!

How To Babysit


Managing kids can be a challenge. One moment they’re snuggling up for stories and talking about their imaginary friends. The next, they’re pinching they’re brothers and sisters or painting the new puppy purple.

How do you cope? You plan. For babysitting you need to be creative, adventurous and know a lot of games. These things will not matter if you do not know what to do if a child has fallen or if a two year old throws a tantrum.

Have a plan! Look for good clients and spread the word to family, friends and neighbors that you are looking forward to babysit.

What is babysitting about? Firstly you have to find a job where you are safe and comfortable. When you go for an interview ask the correct questions and rules of the house. Think about how you will stay in an unfamiliar house.

It will happen! If you are not happy working with newborns or kids with problems there will always be another chance so don’t panic.

Be prepared! The most important thing is to keep yourself and the kids safe. Are you a good babysitter if you can’t handle emergency situations? No you aren’t, if you are not confident.

Don’t panic… you should have the numbers which are able to connect to the kid’s parents or any other important place.

When you have to prepare lunch, planning saves you time and worry. How will you make sure if the young kids or babies stay safe and out of trouble while you prepare a meal?

Young children are very demanding and grab your time. Time management skills like meal time and nap time will be very useful.

Are you used to changing diapers? If you think changing diapers is disgusting then don’t bother to baby sit kids who wear diapers. Be a risk taker and try to change the diaper.

Hey guys do you want make some money for your slumber party and go shopping contact ilsa for babysitting jobs. Babysitting looks complicated but is not when you love kids.
