Choosing a baby sitter is never an easy task especially for a mother who is leaving the child for the first time. If you are able to choose right and make the first experience easy on the kid, chances are that you will be able to do it more often. If the babysitter is not too good with her job and the baby is hassled without you, then the next time may make the baby even crankier
Mothers often fret when they are leaving their baby with a babysitter. Services like Sittercity can help you to make the search safer and easier. At least this is what that review is telling us (linked below the post). There are a few pros and cons of hiring a sitter and these can help in lessening the anxiety of the parents.
- Pros – Of course the pros in your favor are obvious like the sitter will allow you some respite from taking care of the kid, help you get back to work and all that. However, the question here is how good it is for the child. Good baby sitters are able to bring in a lot into the child’s world. Children used to baby sitters will not have a very difficult time adjusting to school and other such new avenues. These kids are able to form friendships easily and are not too clingy in nature either. This is simply because over time the kid learns that apart from the parents others can also be good care givers and everyone need not be feared.
- Cons – Leaving the kid with a sitter can make the child feel abandoned and she may not adjust to this fact. There are certain safety concerns too that must be kept in mind. However, if you hire a good sitter then there are hardly any cons and almost everything falls into the pro section.
A good experienced sitter is the answer to the question whether one should leave the kid with a sitter or not.
