Finding child care isn’t easy. Especially if your schedule changes week to week like mine often does. We have one babysitter who we absolutely adore, but what happens when she’s busy or sick or on vacation? We need some back up. So when a friend recently told me about Sittercity–a sort of Craigslist for babysitting–I decided to sign up. Just hours after posting a summary of what we’re looking for, I received multiple emails from qualified candidates.
Want to try Sittercity too? Just use our special discount code, PARENTURE, and get 30% off your membership fees. You’ll pay less than $25 to try it out for a month. Sounds like a worthwhile investment to me.
Have you used Sittercity before? Will you try it now? What’s most important to you when hiring someone to watch your kids? I like it when people take off their shoes and wash their hands as soon as they walk in my door. Here are some other tips and interview suggestions from Sittercity. Got any others?
