I read Emily's Chatting at the Sky blog regularly. A couple of months ago, she wrote this series based on some conversations she had with babysitters.
Since I am the mom of babysitters and the former hirer of babysitters, I found it quite helpful. I wish I had known some of these things a few years ago.
If you are a babysitter, someone in need of a babysitter, or the parent of a babysitter, hit these links. It will be worth your time. I promise.
