Hi All :) I have a 8 month old son who stays with my sister in law while we both work. I consider myself fortunate because I trust her completely, and I know she loves him whole heartedly. She is in her mid thirties and is almost finished her degree, which means she won't be able to watch him forever. :( Lately, I have seen some concerning things, and would just like some feedback, and please don't take offense if you have done this. I have seen mothers and fathers alike look for babysitters via face-book, the free trader, etc. I have also seen babysitters posting ads for jobs when they are 11 or 12, but have some kind of certificate. Now while I think child care courses are wonderful, they don't teach EVERYTHING.. I am a crazy person when it comes to my son, I don't let anyone and everyone watch him. What do you all think?? How old do you think your sitter should be? How do you find child care??
