Re: How do you feel about...
We rarely have sitters, but I feel the most comfortable with a lady who is my mom's age and has kids/grandkids the age of myself and my kids. It's a great setup bc we are like her foster kids/grandkids bc our parents live far away, and her kids do. I don't necessarily have an issue with a male caregiver...I have a good friend who used to babysit as a teen and he was great with kids. I don't know, though. I don't think I'd trust a teen boy. Men routinely help in our church nurseries, but the guidelines require a woman to be in there at all times as well. My dh is fine with this, as he feels more comfortable in that situation bc no one could ever level any sort of accusation if there was always someone else there.
