Chances are that if you are human, you have been babysat before. You might have even been a babysitter at some point, or perhaps you're a parent and have had to deal with the issue of finding good day care and babysitters for your kids. Why not take that experience and turn it into a Hub?
Now's the time to do it! This week's Weekly Topic Inspiration theme is Day Care and Baby Sitting, so write down your tips, advice, and pointers in Hub form and join us for some child-centric fun!
If you don't know where to start, here are some commonly searched-for keywords on the subject: babysitting games, babysitter wanted, find a babysitter, babysitter games, babysitting rates, free babysitting games, babysitting classes, babysitting websites, child development, early childhood education, babysitting jobs, nanny jobs, early learning center, tutor time, child care jobs, daycare centers in my area, early childhood development, child care rebate, child care vouchers, nanny agencies, universal child care benefit, day care centers, live in nanny, child care subsidy, nanny services, child care assistance, child care centers, nannies for hire, kids care, infant care
As you'll see from those keywords, there is quite some interest on how to find good nannies, babysitting games and activities, how to subsidize or afford daycare, and how to build education into early childcare services. So those would be some great subjects to address!
If you'd like to join in on this week's topic by writing a Hub, follow these steps:
1) Click here to visit this week's topic.
2) Click the green button "answer this question".
3) Click the gray button below the box (leave that empty) that says "make a Hub about it."
4) Give your Hub a very specific title, like Easy Summer Gardening Projects for Kids or Challenging Summer Activities for Teens
5) Create good quality original content that hasn't been covered before.
6) After you publish your Weekly Topic Inspiration Hub, come back to this forum thread and post a link to your Hub with a brief description of what you wrote about and why.
For more information on the Weekly Topic Inspiration program, check out the Learning Center guide.
I'm looking forward to reading your guides!
Turn your babysitter into your housekeeper, too! http://chelseacharleston.hubpages.com/h … usekeepers
My sister works as a nanny and is a fellow hubber, she's been wanting to get some more hubs up soon. I'll send her a line with this thread and perhaps this will inspire her.
Cool! I bet she has a ton of stories! What is her hubber name? My daughter and sister are hubbers here as well.
Oh wow, that's awesome! She's jshe4941. She has a bunch of hub ideas but is in grad school right now so she doesn't have as much time to get on here as she would like. She does have one hub up now and I think she said thanksgiving week she wants to write a bunch. My mom is on here as well, but I don't remember her hubber name. She wants to write on nursing and health issues, but doesn't have any hubs yet.
Edit: My mom is Susie57, but like I said, no hubs yet.
Perfect!!! I hope she joins in on the fun!
Simone...can we include babysitter nightmare stories???? (please, please, please) I have a few of those, LOL
Finally got back here with my first hub - teh computer ate my homework, and I had to redo it. Oh, well, here it is now:

I finally made it back with the tale of babysitting terror:

This is my second hub on the topic this week. If my first hub talked about How to be a Babysitter, this one talks about How to Get a Babysitter.
Hi there! I contributed a hub about interview questions to ask when considering home daycare. I take my daughter to a home daycare, and it's a great option for us. However, I saw some not-so-great ones when I was trying to find child care for her. Tips For Picking a Home Daycare- Questions to Ask at a Home Daycare Visit
I enjoyed reading all the other hubs for this topic!
Hi, after reading RedElf's hub about holy terrors, I thought I would contribute a hub about some ways to keep active kid entertained on rainy days. This is my first contribution to a weekly hub idea.
