Choosing the right babysitter can seem like a minefield. Who is the right person for my children? How much should I be paying them? What should I expect from a babysitter? These are just a few of the questions you may be asking yourself.
It goes without saying that as parents, we want to be sure that the babysitter we hire is reliable, trustworthy, and caring. But how do we go about doing this? An interview is a perfect opportunity to get to know your babysitter both personally and professionally. If you have found a babysitter from a friend or relative, you may not need to interview as extensively, however, even an informal chat can be reassuring and provide the opportunity to set your expectations.
