The Baby-Sitters Club Wiki

The Delaney Family is the family of BSC charges Amanda Delaney and Max Delaney. They lived in Stoneybrook, CT until they moved away in Little Sister #19 Karen's Good-bye.


After the family moved away in Karen's Good-bye, the Kormans moved into their house. Amanda and Max are good swimmers, but they must have a neighbor at home to swim when being baby-sat. The kids' friends can swim the width of the pool without a rest; they're allowed to swim there. Amanda and Max love to test new sitters. Kristy can handle them.

Stacey McGill used reverse psychology on Amanda and Max Delaney in Kristy and the Snobs. This makes both Max and Amanda think Stacey McGill is weird.
