Question:Best way to find a babysitter?

I work from home, but I want to find someone to look after my baby for a few hours here and there - when I have a meeting outside the house or if my husband and I want to go out for dinner. We're new to the area, though - any tips on finding a reliable babysitter?

Great Mother is Real... I am Aisha Kun and i want to testify about Great Mother how she cured me of hiv aids. I was diagnosed of this disease some time ago and i was worried. when i was searching the internet looking for a cure, i came across some testimonies of Great Mother how she has helped a lot of people and i decided to contact her on her info and explained to her. She laughed and told me that she will help me and i was surprised. She sent me the cure and it was a spiritual holy oil and water which is more than a medicine. She directed me on how to take it and i did. I took the cure for 3 weeks and i went to the doctor for check up and to my greatest surprise the disease was no longer in my system. I am so glad and i want to thank Great Mother for helping me.

Answer:

Leaning on local schools sounds like a great idea. My sister teaches four and five year olds (I know she's a saint, right?), and she is constantly getting requests from parents to babysit. Many of those parents also refer her to other parents with kids.

I would also consult your neighbors who have small kids, and ask them for a few reliable suggestions.

Lastly, ask for references from a babysitter ... you can never be too sure!

Answer:

Do you know anyone who is a high school teacher? I found one of the best babysitters I've ever had for my daughter this way.

Answer:

I've gotten babysitting jobs on craigslist before...but with anything, interview AND check references. You can write an ad for exactly what you want in a babysitter.

Answer:

I would add to ask your pediatrician, if you have one in town. Friends and family are always best. Are there any relatives in the area? Perhaps asking co-workers who have young children as well if they would share their contacts.

Answer:

If you have neighbors with kids, perhaps you want to ask for a referral. You also might want to try your local college/university, especially the education department.
