Question for those who use babysitters

phillymomSeptember 18, 2005

I am planning to interview some local babysitters for my 2 children ages 4 and 18 months. I plan to use her 1-2 times per month for maybe 2-3 hours

What age is the babysitter you use? I am not sure what a good age is for someone to be watching 2 younger children

Any advice??

Depends on a lot of things....not the least of which is where you will be...and the responsibility of the sitter.
I like 13 to 14 year old girls....they are old enough to be responsible and young enough to spend a lot of time playing with your kids and not be on the phone with friends. And I find that after that age they are too busy to baby sit or have other jobs.
My daughter baby sat at 10....but with the infant next door and when she did we were always home.
