Re: Do your babysitters allow TV?

We don't use a lot of babysitters but I can say that when I was babysitting when I was a teenager and in college, I had a personal policy of NOT watching TV with the kids I was caring for. I felt guilty getting paid for sitting on my butt. I think you're right--if you're paying someone $10 an hour you're certainly right to expect that person to play with your child the entire time, or at least to do something constructive with her.
