Moms Talk: Hiring the Babysitter
The place where moms—and dads too—talk.
Every parent needs a night out once in awhile. But when it comes to leaving the kids at home, sometimes it's easier said than done.
A lucky few might have a grandparent or longtime friend nearby who is available to watch the kiddies, but for many parents, a night out means hiring a babysitter.
So, today, we're talking about babysitters on Moms Talk:
- Have the prices gone up? What are the current rates?
- How do you find someone you trust?
- Do you require a babysitter to have passed a certification course?
- Do you expect the sitter to get to and from your home on their own, or do you drive them?
For those parents who are long past needing a sitter to watch the kids, tell our other parents your best practices, tips and experiences. Got any funny, scary, or strange stories to share?
