Corey Ufberg is counting down the days until her university's winter break. Her five-week vacation will allow her to see family, catch up on sleep and make $13 to $15 an hour watching kids. This holiday season she has two families in mind that she might work for, but she's hoping for more.

"It's a really easy job, and it's a lot of fun," says the 19-year-old Cornell University student. She says that although the responsibility that comes with babysitting can be stressful, it's can be a great job for students, especially when school is out.
