Working moms need babysitters daily. Stay at home moms need baby sitting services occasionally. where do we find reliable babysitters these days?
Many have turned to online advertisements for baby sitting services to find someone to keep their children. But is it safe to get a babysitter online? It can be.
After the initial online meeting, go to the potential babysitter’s home to conduct a face-to-face interview. Spend a little time in the home so you will be able to see the environment where your children will be staying in your absence.
You can never be too safe when it comes to your children, so ask a lot of questions. Ask for background info, past jobs working with children, how they discipline and how they praise children.
Ask what and how will they teach your children, feed your children and how much time will be dedicated to learning, playing and napping.
If you do hire someone online to babysit, pay attention to how your child’s demeanor after you pick them up at the sitter’s home.
Ask your child how their day was before leaving the sitters and pay attention to their body language as well as their words.
