Babysitting does not always have to go to your home, it can be a hotel where you are invited to a wedding, a restaurant or any other place where you are or where you want to be your child.
A babysitter is someone who temporarily cares for children on behalf of the children's parents or guardians. A babysitter may also be referred to as a "sitter," and they generally take care of children of all ages who are in need of supervision. Most babysitting jobs are considered part-time jobs that are paid by the hour, and are either scheduled regularly (e.g., every day from 3-6 p.m. or every Saturday night) or for special occasions (e.g., New Year's Eve).
Babysitters are generally responsible for planning activities for your children (e.g., games, sports, arts and crafts, etc. ) or supervising playdates. However, some sitters may be willing to take on additional responsibilities (e.g., cooking, light housekeeping, driving children to and from scheduled activities, and helping with homework) for extra money. Ensure that those expectations are clear to any babysitter candidates you interview.
Above all else, though, a babysitter is responsible for the safety and well-being of your children while they're in her care.
Babysitters may find they have plenty of free time, especially if child care is occurring in the evening or late at night. While most parents have no issues with babysitters watching television, talking on the phone or accessing the Internet, all parents are different. Parents should set ground rules prior to leaving the home and babysitters should be prepared to meet those ground rules. Remember, the care of the child is the foremost goal of babysitting.
Babysitting has a long history that started with care providers watching children in the home while parents entertained other adult guests. The term and job description has evolved over the years to describe an older child or early teen providing temporary care for a child while parents are out of the home.
Our babysitters going through a selection process, a personal interview, checking recommendations and prior experiences, health checks, motivation for working with children, education, as well as obtaining criminal background documents.
