well somtimes it depends on alot of things like what they see you doing when theyre kids are around or age is a very big issue to so just show them you are very reasponsalbe and talk very perfestional.


p.s. try sitting down with the parents and tell them you are very reasponsable and ask them why they are avoiding you to babysit theyre kids.

Maybe they don't think or old enough or Immature and not responsable. They might not trust you with their kid. Or maybe they have another babysitter or just don't need one yet.... they could also think that you are too needy and not reponsable enough because you were having your mom ask instead of confronting them and asking yourself.

is it at all possible that they don't need a babysitter? well if it isn't and like other people have beenbabysitting there or something maybe thay do think you are too young. maybe you haven't proven you are Responsible-women or something yet. maybe they just don't know you well enough. offer to do more jobs for them. come over to thier house more often. play with the kid when they are around so they know you'll be good when they aren't. if that doesn't work there are still tons of other people that need baysitters. look into that.
well good luck w/ your nieghbor!

Maybe they just dont like other people taking care of their kids. They are probably just over-protective. Don't take it personally.

well dont take it personally because maybe they have like a set sitter that they have used for MANY years, and they love and trust her. This happehned to me across the street neiughbors hav a live in, but they still called me bc the live in couldnt be there. Just print out like a paper about youu to give to them so they can call u, and even if THEY dont they can give it to a friend, and jsut lik hand out flyers... hope i helpe!

We obviously don't know you so we can't give you that many reasons. But, depending on how long they've known you and how old their children are, they probably just aren't comfortable with the idea yet. Probably nothing against you, they just might be looking for someone that is 15 or 16. That or they might not feel that they know you as well as they want before letting you watch over their children. If they have a 16-year-old girl come along that they've known longer, they'd most likely go with her.

Also, they might not even need a babysitter or already have one. Again, if you gave more info, it would be easier.

What I would suggest is try spending more time with the kids and the parents so they can see how y'all react to each other.
