So I live in a tourist town. I have seen a lot of families ask their waitress if they can baby sit. I have even seen adds on job sites for people to baby sit over night while the vacationing parents go out. Some of the kids are too young to even tell the parents if something were to happen.
Would you ever put an online ad for a baby sitter knowing that you probably won't have time to call references or do a back ground check?
Would you ask a friendly waitress to watch your children over night in your hotel room?
