Let's face it, regardless of how much you love your children, there are times when you need to leave them in someone else's care while you go to work, run errands, go to the doctor, or even take a stress break. Since your world pretty well revolves around your children right now, you don't want to leave them with just anybody. Hopefully you can find someone who loves children and welcomes the opportunity to share their life with them for a few hours. (Yes, there are plenty of people like that.) Get recommendations from friends, neighbors, or coworkers. Youth groups at church or school are good places to find teens looking to earn some extra cash. Conduct an interview with potential babysitters with your children present to see how the babysitter interacts with your children. If they don't take an interest in your child, keep looking.
