Mom Talk: Babysitting
Where to find a good sitter, how much do you pay for your babysitter and what do you do with your precious time when you're able to get away from the kiddies.
Lakewood Patch invites you — and your circle of friends — to help build a community of support for parents, caregivers and their families right here in Lakewood.
Each Wednesday at 1 p.m. in the Moms Talk Q&A, our Moms Council of experts and smart local parents answer questions, give advice and share solutions.
Members of our dynamic Lakewood Patch Moms Council have done it again.
At a recent meeting of our wonderful group, one of our councilwomen suggested a topic important to many parents: Babysitting.
It can be difficult — and expensive — to find that perfect sitter.
We want to know how you do it.
How often do you have a sitter for the kids? Are you able to have significant time to yourself, or time alone with your significant other?
More from the discussion board:
Are you type that will refuse an invitation if the kids are not included? How do you find a good sitter — and once you have, how much do you pay?
We’re not volunteering to watch your kids, but we’d sure would like to learn about your experiences.
