So you think you have the perfect babysitter candidate? We strongly recommend you have them meet your family and your child to be doubly sure. This final step ensures that your babysitter will be a good fit with your family. After meeting the babysitter, ask your spouse and children what they think. If possible, it’s a good idea to have a “trial run,” with the babysitter candidate taking care of your child while you’re in the house to observe.
