Does you know of any website's that offer assistance finding a babysitter or nanny?

Looking for someone to watch my children this summer. I don't know where to start looking. My daughter is nine and my son is two. I feel like my nine yea old is too old for daycare. I need to start looking now since school is almost out.

  • You can always run an ad in the newspaper, that way you can personally screen the people for the traits you are looking for and don't get a kook.

  • Try googling Mom groups in your area. I belong to a Mom group for my county and love it. They are always recommending people as sitters. I use my Mom group for everything!
