Would you hire a babysitter you don't know?

The reason I say never is; even someone who has been thoroughly vetted and has a great background may not be a good fit for my family. Now, maybe I am being hasty. You are talking about one night out, not me leaving for a month.
I think meeting someone in person and seeing how they respond to your kids is a critical part of the selection process. Even if that meeting is relatively brief, you learn a lot. These are my most precious people and I would not entrust them to a stranger. No matter how excellent that stranger may be.
