 It's only April! Yeah I know, but if you're like most parents you will procrastinate making arrangements to have your children in camps, STEM programs, or even childcare; then, the last day of school you will slap yourself in the head and start the summer childcare scramble! Don't do it to yourself. Start now and you will have a worry free summer. If you; wait a lot of camps will be filled up, and then you'll really be hurting.

Spring Break

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Mar 15, 2019 6:08:00 AM

I'm an old fuddy duddy because when I was growing up spring break applied to college students, not me when I was in  elementary school. Now kids of all school ages have spring break and I really don't know how parents do it. I mean don't parents still have to work all year round? What do you do with the kids? Do you go on a vacation? Do you arrange childcare? Does one parent take off of work? Being a parent is so much more complicated then it used to be.

That's a good question, and the answer is: a lot! Finding a babysitter on your own is a tricky endeavor, and even after you find a babysitter that you believe is the right one you may find out they are not, and then you have to start the process all over again...ugh!

Recruiting Babysitters

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Nov 9, 2018 5:02:00 AM

I can't tell you how hard it is to find people that take babysitting seriously. During my time operating an agency that places babysitters for ongoing, permanent, or on-call positions I've heard and seen it all, and I'm still surprised at the laissez faire approach that people try to get away with when talking to me about why they want to babysit. If I were a parent I would want someone like me to take on the recruiting process. It is one of the worst parts of doing what I do. People don't show up for interviews, don't return your calls, show up late for interviews, come to an interview dressed inappropriately, and so many other things.

Do You Have a Bad Babysitter?

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Mar 6, 2018 3:03:00 AM

There are so many horror stories that go the rounds, and posted on You Tube about horrible babysitters. The images of a babysitter or nanny violently shaking a baby or brutally spanking a child are images that parents can't get out of their heads when they leave their children with a babysitter.
