Tips on How to Find a Great Sitter
Finding the perfect babysitter may feel impossible at times. However, the good news is that it is possible to find a great babysitter.
Here a few tips to help you with your journey:
Most likely you will get great results by starting off by asking your sphere of influence. For example. Ask you friends and neighbors or even coworkers if they know anyone that they would highly recommend.
Check with your church or any group that you are a part of.
If your child goes to daycare, ask the teachers or staff if they know anyone.
This one could be risky but some parents has had success with it. Post your inquiry on Facebook.
Once you found a good candidate, it is now time to screen the potential sitter.
Here are a few tips on how to effectively screen a candidate:
Invite the sitter to your home for the interview to get a feel on how your child will react to the sitter.
Ask if the sitter has experience in caring for children around your child’s age range.
Ask what would be their response if the child starts crying or refuses to go to bed.
Ask the sitter if they have first aid and CPR training (if that is a major requirement for you).
Ask what they will charge to watch your child. Hint: Stay within your budget but do not low ball your sitter since they will be taking care of your child. You only want the best for your child. If you pay well, most likely they will watch your child again when you need a sitter.
