(DailyThrive.com) – COVID has disrupted much of society. Many parents are working remotely, while some children are left learning from home. Even younger ones — they’re home too, making it rather difficult to get work of any kind done without some type of interruption.
For some parents, this situation has created an opportunity to embark on a unique money-making idea, virtual babysitting. Good Morning America explains more:
It almost seems like an episode of the Twilight Zone, but it is real, and parents are flocking to it — so much so, Forbes claims searches for virtual babysitting have had a 700% increase in just the past month.
There is a catch: Sessions are for short periods of time, and children need to be about 5 years of age to work video calls and do activities with the babysitters.
