Choosing a Babysitter: Why the Same Values Are Important!

Searching for a good babysitter or long-term caregiver for your kids can be a hard process and difficult decision for parents. As you choose your next caregiver, keep in mind that you may want to select individuals with the same values and beliefs that you try to instill as a parent. These people will be spending a lot of time with your children at important stages in their lives, and you don't want your time away from your children to work against you! So think about what matters to you in terms of:

  • religion
  • politics
  • discipline

Ask the tough questions!

So true - and often overlooked! A friend of mine was complaining that her son was talking about a certain political leader in a positive way when she felt the opposite. Turns out, her babysitter was filling his head with her politic views. Crazy! It's something to think about. Thanks for sharing this, Heather Travitz!
