  • I don't know exactly what kind they are talking about but I have found my 2 part time jobs through www.care.com and www.sittercity.com. I have had my background check done and fingerprints. The two families I help have no relatives nearby and really needed a sitter. I did my homework on them too. Called their references and made a house visit before taking the job.

  • I worked at one when I was in college. I went to college in a resort town (Wilmington, NC) and during the summers they were really slammed with out of town families and many of the parents wanted to go out without their kids and would call. But I've never used one.
