The Valuable Lesson I Learned from Babysitting

by Louie Bischoff

My 1st babysitting experience taught me a valuable lesson. I was 12 & was watching a family friend’s 4yr old, while the parents went on a date. I, a responsible 12-year-old, was ready for this challenge! The first few hours were a breeze… Until dinner time rolled around. The parents had a specific meal for me to prepare for their child. It was a very age-appropriate choice: mac & cheese with chicken nuggets on the side! The child, on the other hand, wanted NOTHING TO DO WITH IT! I tried to “sell” the kid on the mac & cheese/chicken nuggets combo by saying that it was ‘so delicious’, it was ‘magical food & will give you superpowers’… I tried EVERYTHING, but still no movement to eat! So, I started offering alternatives that I thought kids their age would like instead of the mac & cheese/chicken nuggets meal. Me: How about PB&J? Kid: No. Me: How about Spaghetti O’s? Kid: No. Me: How about oatmeal? Kid: No. Everything that I suggested was a ‘no’. New Strategy! Me: What do YOU want to eat? Kid: Broccoli. Broccoli with ranch. I WAS NOT expecting that response - the broccoli & ranch were put on the table; the mac & cheese/ chicken nuggets combo was put away in the fridge….the rest of the night went fantastically & the parents had me babysit for them for the next 2 years!
