So say you just found this awesome job. Now you need to find childcare. No one knows your children like you do. You can get them involved and ask them "who do you like watching you?" even "who do you like more?" I definitely ask my oldest these questions. If my child does not like you, you can't watch my kids. If you want your child to behave better, make sure they're comfortable with who is watching them.
Another thing is, you get what you pay for. Treat the people that care for your children, with care and respect. Always make sure if you want something extra done, you ask for it. Reward for extra work. A babysitter that cares for your children tends to get very attached to your children. They may do extra around the house for you. If you want a good relationship with your babysitter, at the end of the week give her a tip. This will guarantee she will continue doing a great job. Show her you appreciate her.
Okay so only a mother can be a mom. I also believe when it comes to leaving your children alone with somebody, it should also be a female. Unless it is somebody related, or you completely trust. Background checks are necessary when looking for a caregiver. Try to avoid looking for caregivers online. That idea just scares me. So many people out there, do not know how to care for a child properly. Make sure you get you know the caregiver first. If you are bringing your child to a Care Center make sure its clean, safe, and friendly. Always check out a center before you sign your child up for that center. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to send me a question through my contact forums.
Thank you and good luck on finding your perfect babysitter, because when it comes to your child, don't accept anything but perfect.
