Babysitting pamphlets revised

Public Legal Education and Information Service of New Brunswick (PLEIS-NB) recently updated a series of pamphlets called “Who’s Minding the Kids”. The first pamphlet, A Parent’s Guide, looks at the many legal rights and responsibilities of parents placing their children in informal child care situations. Informal child care means arrangements which do not require the approval of the Department of Family and Community Services.

The next pamphlet, A Sitter’s Guide, is intended to make a young person think and ask questions before they take a babysitting job. The pamphlet looks at the rights and responsibilities of sitters when they care for children.

The last pamphlet, A Homecare Guide, deals with some of the legal concerns of persons who are caring for children in their own homes. This pamphlet talks about your rights and responsibilities when you look after children on a regular basis in your home.

These extremely popular pamphlets, are available on our website – PLEIS-NB will be distributing them to libraries and community groups. If you would like to order a copy, feel free to contact PLEIS-NB by email at
