I know it is difficult to leave your children with someone that isn't family or even someone you know personally. I will tell you that no matter who you leave your children with there is no guarantee that something won't happen to the kids when you leave BUT you need to understand that there is no guarantee when parents have the kids for the simple reason that kids are unpredictable. We all know that kids can move like lightning, and you never know where they're headed; that is a certainty!

Posted by Jaidene Anderlini on Jun 14, 2020 7:42:00 AM

What makes a good babysitter? We all ask ourselves that, and being an agency that hires babysitters I am always looking for key elements that make a good babysitter. Everyone you interview will say they just love children but you need to know WHY they love children. As we all know children are lovable and difficult at the same time. We love them and they have the innate ability to push our buttons. Babysitters are no longer what they used to be. We want them to tutor, transport, teach, organize, and engage with our children while keeping our homes tidy. Here are some qualities I look for when interviewing and honed in on after 9 years of hiring babysitters.

Now that you have children you need to choose childcare and you aren't quite sure how to do that. Should you get a permanent nanny, a part-time babysitter, go through an agency, or go to a website that provides listings for babysitters? It all depends upon what your needs are. It isn't a simple answer and the first thing you need to evaluate is what your family needs are in regards to babysitting.

7 great coronavirus dates

You May be at home but you can take time away from the kids!

Oh yeah the Coronavirus is here and it looks like it will be here for awhile but your relationship with your partner need not be sacrificed. You need time away from the kids probably now more than ever. The kids are always home, they are home for school, you're home with them working, they can't have physical plat-dates and you're organizing virtual play-dates, you're in charge of keeping them educated and entertained all the while your missing your partner besides just at bedtime.

There is no reason to lose our minds BUT....you don't want to spread it around either. So here are some things to consider BEFORE you schedule a babysitter for your children during this time of caution.
