About 15 girls ranging from ages 10 to 14 participated in a Babysitting 101 class offered Wednesday at the University of Tennessee Extension office. Taught by UT extension agent Emily Osterhaus, the class was part of a series of classes this week that also included sewing and cooking. Osterhaus said Wednesday's class aimed at preparing the girls for future babysitting jobs. Students in her class learned about basic babysitting responsibilities, how to play with children, supervising children, accident prevention, basic care, emergency action and basic first aid.
