Steps To Take With Your Kids

1. Bid a warm goodbye to your old sitter. If your kids have grown close to a previous babysitter who is departing for college or for other reasons, help them say goodbye to make the transition more comfortable. You can have a simple celebration with cake or let your kids pick out a small gift.

Steps To Take With Your New Sitter

1. Ask your new sitter to arrive early. It’s usually a good idea for a new sitter to arrive about an hour before you plan to go out. This gives you plenty of time to make introductions (if they didn’t already meet the kids). You can also stay on hand in the next room while your kids and the new sitter start getting to know each other. It also allows time for you to go over anything you might have forgotten to mention before.
