For live-in nannies, Saturday night sitters, and everyone who cares for kids.
Answers to the questions sitters ask most:
- The parents want me to pick up their newborn every time he cries—won’t that spoil him?
- A child who comes over for play dates always makes a terrible mess and never helps to clean up. What can I do?
- The girl I baby-sit for tripped and got a bump on her head. What’s the best way to tell the parents?
- I take care of a six-month-old and a three-year-old with completely different sleeping patterns. How do I juggle naptimes?
