TO MIND-3 (REVISION): meaning and examples

Good morning.

Today we continue with meanings and uses of the verb to mind.

Today's meaning of mind as a verb is: to take care of or look after somebody or something for a short time.

This meaning is more common in UK English than in US English.

Example 1
Daniella's mother usually minds the children for an hour after school.

Example 2
Can you mind the phones while I go to the post office? (= Can you "look after" or answer the phones?)

Example 3
The Bradbury family are looking for someone to mind their dog while they're away on holiday.

Tomorrow will be the final day we look at the verb mind. Remember, if you have any questions about today's Daily Vitamin, I don't mind answering your questions in the Daily Vitamin Plus! forum section on our website (
