Your child just asked that you babysit in your home one or more infant, toddler, or young school-age grandchildren for an overnight, a long weekend, several weeks, or longer, or during the day every day for an indefinite period of time while schools and day care centers are closed. You are healthy and have spent time with each grandchild while a parent is present or even overnight at the grandchild’s home. Now you must go it alone in your home.
