I will be babysitting two kids, a five and nine year old. I've babysitted before a long time ago with my sister, but this time I will be alone. I worry about what games and activites I could do with them and what I should do if they don't listen to me. They seem to be good, active kids.

You should ask the kids what they want to do, don't force games on them but always try to include both of them in the activities so they don't feel left out. If they don't listen to you tell them the consequences of not behaving, like having to sit in the corner for 5 minutes or taking away the toy they're playing with. If they keep being naughty, do what you promised would be the consequence and keep yourself to it, no matter how much they cry or yell or whatever. You have to be strict but fair.1
