Offer A Couple Hours Of Free Babysitting To Parents
Many parents of young children can’t afford to go out as much as they like because they don't have time, or can't afford the added expense of a babysitter.
Give a family with small children a chance they might not have by donating a couple hours of your time to watch their children for free.
Being a parent can be a lot of work and tiring. Offering to babysit for someone who can't afford a babysitter will give the parents a much-needed break.
Step It Up
Teenagers can put an ad in a neighborhood newsletter or church bulletin, offering free babysitting services to parents who need a break.
Keep It Simple
Offer to spend an evening watching a friend’s or relative’s kids.
