How to choose a babysitter for a child

Time is the main deficit in the modern era. Young mothers coming out of maternity leave are very often overwhelmed with work to the point of failure. It is good if grandmothers or grandfathers live next to you, ready to pick up a child at the right time.

And if the grandmothers live far away and there is no one to pick up the child on time from kindergarten? In such cases, there is a need for a babysitter for the child.

How to choose a babysitter: babysitter or au-pair

The concept of a babysitter originally came from an au-pair. Only today they differ significantly from each other. Au-pair usually lives in a family, most often it is a young girl or even a guy, and mostly came under contract from abroad.

And although the au-pair's working hours are determined, she is still in contact with the child almost around the clock.

The nanny usually comes to you several times a week or if necessary. If you order a nanny through an agency, then several nannies may come in a week. Unlike an au pair, a babysitter does not help with the housework, but only spends the agreed time with the child.

The child does not have time to get used to the frequently changing nannies. Already at the age of two months, the child observes the events around him during the day, using sight and hearing. Therefore, gradually images of people are formed in his mind: familiar and unfamiliar. At about the age of 5-6 months, the baby is already able to distinguish "his" from others.

This period is very important in the emotional development of the child, and it is not desirable that "their" people constantly change in the child.

Your going to work with a decree to a child may seem strange, scare him and lead to depression based on the loss of communication with a loved one.

Finding and choosing a babysitter – tips

If you have decided to find a babysitter, you should be careful and attentive when choosing one.

Probably the most acceptable way is to find a babysitter through an agency. As a rule, they recommend only people with pedagogical or medical education who have experience in working with young children and providing first aid. This way you will have a much better chance that your child will be calm with the babysitter, and you will be more confident in her.

It is also possible to search for a babysitter via the Internet, but only if it is recommended by your acquaintances, neighbors, friends, colleagues or people living in the same area with you.

When choosing a babysitter, be careful, because you will leave your child with her and allow her to move freely around your house (if you do not want her to sit with the child in another place). Look at several candidates and clearly set your rules and requirements. It is best to meet with a candidate for a babysitter without a child, somewhere outside the house, to have enough time to discuss the details. Ask why she wants to work for you and how she imagines communicating with your child. State your requirements and agree on the terms of the transaction. It's important to note that, like all slot machines, Sweet Bonanza is a game of chance. While there are strategies that can be employed to increase a player's chances of winning, there is no guaranteed way to win at the game. Players should always gamble responsibly and only bet what they can afford to lose.
