"Take care of the small children and infants." ~ Cube
Babysitting is very obviously meant for the early game. It raises Sensitivity, which is a tricky stat and gets lots of bonuses later. It doesn't pay very well, and yet it's as stressful as farming. The biggest use it has therefore is in winning the cooking contest early on, after you've got cooking up to 60 with housework. You don't have money for Poetry classes, they won't raise Sensitivity much faster than babysitting and a lot of other Sensitivity bonuses are locked out for you at this point. So this becomes the main stay of your Sensitivity raising, so long as you remember not to over work her. Do be warned that there's a very good chance of Olive running away since her early low stats mean that this can easily make Sensitivity her highest stat.
For maximum efficiency, combine this with mountain vacations. Mountain vacations will cure stress, raise Sensitivity more efficiently at 10 points for 10 days, including Sundays, and early on don't cost much at 100 G per vacation.
Later you won't be wanting to raise Sensitivity too much before getting other stats raised, and Charisma isn't too easy to gain back conventionally so you won't be wanting to use it's stat penalty much either unless it's her highest stat. This job loses a lot of its value at later ages.
