I would ask my friends and neighbors to share their babysitter's phone numbers. That way they are coming with a recommendation from someone you trust. Do you have any friends that would be willing to sit for you in exchange for watching their kids? My friend and I do that and it works out well because our children love playing together. I also have been getting to know the teenagers at our church and in the neighborhood since I'm thinking that they can babysit sometime when I need it and I want to get to know them first. Good luck.

Well it depends on where you live, the groups you're involved with and what you're willing to pay! Haha, what I mean is, sometimes you can find ads in the paper for child care and it wouldn't hurt to call and ask if the provider would be able to do an occasional watch. Also if you are a member of a church or other group, often there are many trustworthy teens and parents who may be willing to help you out every now and then. Hope this was helpful!
