My helper is my husband.  I only use him if I need to go someone in the evening before closing time.  I do try to inform the parents ahead of time if I think of it.  My parents are ok with me leaving the kids with my husband so it's not that big of deal.

The only time I have a helper is if I need to be away from the house, like if I have an appointment or when I went for my cpr re-cert, & that is only if I can't do it on the weekend or my day off (I have wednesdays off right now). Usually its my grandmother (who did childcare her whole working career) or my sister (who is a nurse)

I usually mention something to the parents if they will be here during pick up time. I have it in my contract that there may be time I will use one of them & it explains their background. Also when I do an interview I let them know that we can schedule a time for them to meet if the parents want.
