BABYSITTERS aren’t usually encouraged to care for kids with lots of sugar and screen time, but that’s what one young girl was told to do.
Most mums and dads leave a short list of instructions for anyone looking after their children, but this couple left a very detailed, and unconventional ten-point list for their babysitter.
It seems the parents decided to have some fun by encouraging the babysitter to use “as much TV as possible” and to not waste any time on healthy snacks.
This list written by US parents has since gone viral after being shared online by the shocked boyfriend of the babysitter.
The boyfriend shared a photo of the list — which was retweeted 17,000 times, with the caption, “My girl went to go babysit and this is what the parents left her”.
The note advised the babysitter against lending any neighbours eggs, and warned the babysitter not to answer the house phone “unless you feel like paying bills”.
Also included in the list were gems such as:
“Let the kids have as much sugar as they want, as long as they will go away and “I encourage the kids to watch as much TV as possible so they will leave you the hell alone. Feel free to do the same”.
