I have a great 16 almost 17 year old babysitter that looks forward to watching my kids and sometimes calls me and asks if I need her to babysit. I don't know what I am going to do next year when she goes off to college. What does everyone else do?
I know it is hard to find people you trust.

We just don't go out. When we lived in PA our kids were 6, 5, 4 and an infant and in the 2 years we lived there we never once went out without the kids.
We now live on the other side of the country from all our family (except my brother who is an hour away and doesn't like kids). We wait until the older 3 are in school and go to breakfast/lunch with the younger 2. But until the youngest is in school we won't go anywhere without at least 1 of the kids with us. We trust the older kids to stay home alone for a couple hours so we can run to the store but we have to take the baby. Can't wait until the baby is in school (in another 5 years).
