Question: "I'm looking for a babysitter in my hometown
for night time so I can go out sometimes. But I don't know where
to start the search, can you please give me some suggestions on
where to start, and how to trust someone and what questions to ask.
What ever you do, be certain to ask for references. You might also
ask other parents what criteria they set when looking for a babysitter.
You must set your own standards according to what is important to
you. Do you have a preference that your childcare provider be licensed,
be a certain age, or have a certain level of experience. You may
also want to pay close attention to your child's reaction to the
prospective childcare provider.
