It is hard to say goodbye to friends and family before a move, but little is said about the difficulty of leaving many of your favorite service providers. Moving means finding a new cable/internet company, utility provider, hair dresser, church, mechanic and one of the most difficult…a trusted baby sitter.
I posed six questions to fellow parents and military families around the topic of babysitting. Their insightful answers can help you in your babysitter search whether you are moving to a new place or are a new parent who needs assistance procuring child care (I am the latter!):
Additional sage advice:
- “Don't be afraid to interview, and do a test run (like have them watch the kids while you're doing chores or something at home to see how they interact). This is what we plan on doing when we pcs and lose our wonderful babysitters that live right next door.” - Lyndsey
- “The best sitter I have ever had is a high school student! Including very well qualified sitters- she still far exceeds them and my daughter loves her. So do not discredit high school students for adults.” - Elaine
Do you have different answers to the questions posed above? Please share anything I have missed!
