When is it appropriate to use a babysitting agency?
When you’re not getting enough sleep, your boss doesn’t like you, you’ve just been to a party or you just can’t sleep… but what if that’s just a matter of not getting the job done, or maybe you don’t have the right personality for the job?
In this episode of IGN Health, we’re joined by our resident pediatrician, Dr. James B. Sperling, to answer these questions and more.
Dr. S, welcome back!
Can you explain to us what exactly is a babysitters job?
And so what does it mean to babysit?
A babysitter is a person who helps people with disabilities perform their job of caring for people, especially children, when they are too tired, tired or busy to be able to do so themselves.
Dr S, so when does a babysit job start and how long does it last?
And what’s the difference between a babysitt and a caregiver?
A caregiver helps people care for people by providing support and comfort.
A babysitter provides support and is responsible for their well-being.
What is a caregipper?
Dr S: A babysitting service is a provider of care to people who are unable to do their own job.
A caregipper does not care for a person, they care for someone who is at risk of suffering.
A caregiver does not offer a place to stay, a home to stay in, or a meal to be taken home.
What do babysitters do?
Dr. James Sperlng, DO, is a pediatrician and occupational therapist who specializes in children, adolescents, families and youth.
He has a Bachelors of Science in Pediatrics from the University of Washington, and an M.S. in Occupational Therapies from University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.
He graduated from the Pediatric Hospital of Eastern Washington in 2015 and received his MD and M.D. from the Duke University School of Medicine in 2018.
Dr James S is also the founder of the Babysitter Careers blog, where he provides information on the various types of caregivers in the workforce.
Dr B, is it okay to be an employer when your child has a disability?
Dr B: Yes.
Dr. S says that when a parent with a disability has a child, “a lot of caregivers are out of work.”
And that’s because of the lack of support available to parents with disabilities.
Dr J, what’s an ideal job for a child with a mental health disability?
Doesn’t this job require a little more work than the typical day at work?
And how can a caregitter help a child in the process of transitioning to adulthood?
Dr J: A caregiper helps people in the transition to adulthood by providing them with support and companionship, so that they can live independently.
And as adults, they may need help in the workplace or in a relationship.
Dr S says the most important thing to look for is someone who has a passion for caring for children, and someone who enjoys being around kids.
A babysitting job requires a little extra effort, but a caregiper can provide that extra effort to the children in their care.
So what is a good job for parents with mental health disabilities?
