Advertise for a Babysitting Job

In these tough economic times, you should have absolutely no trouble finding a babysitter. If you and your husband have just moved to a new city and do not have any free babysitter options (aka family members), then will need to start your research so that you two have a little time to yourselves! It can be difficult leaving your children with a stranger even just a few hours but if you do your research well, you will be able to find someone with whom you and your children feel comfortable, and someone who is prepared with free babysitting games to keep your children entertained and happy.

When advertising for a babysitting job, you might want to avoid posting fliers everywhere the first week you arrive in town. Instead, plan to stay home for a few weeks and try to get to know your neighbors and coworkers as well as get a feel for this new place. Your neighborhood is one of the best places to find potential babysitters. The teenagers that live here know the area well and their parents are close by should anything happen and they cannot contact you. You can also get a feel for who they are little by little and your children will also see them on a regular basis. The same theory works well for older siblings of the kids at your child’s elementary school and for teenagers who attend your place of worship.

Once you have found a few potential candidates, ask them if they would be interested to/able to baby-sit for your family. Teenagers nowadays have very packed schedules. They are at school all week and then fill their afternoon and early evening hours with play rehearsals, sports practice, and yearbook meetings. If your family has special needs, such as an infant or special dietary needs, then you need to make these factors evident when you are talking to potential babysitter. As long as you find a mature individual whom your children like, then you should be fine!

However, if no one is available time-wise or has the skills to take care of your children, you will need to advertise your babysitting job elsewhere. The internet is quickly becoming one of the best places to find a babysitter in your area. Several online babysitting sites allow you to post your family’s profile and allow you to search for and contact qualified sitters near you!
