Hiring a Babysitter Shouldn’t Stress You Out!
Hiring a babysitter should relief some of your parenting stress!
There comes a time for every new parent to hire a babysitter and leave their first-born child for the very first time! Just writing this sentence bring back memories…and anxiety! I remember that day way-back-when so well. Just thinking about that first time of leaving my child and going on a date to Broadway at the Beach in Myrtle Beach gives me anxiety. It’s a super fun place to hang out – really, there not a single place in Myrtle Beach that’s NOT fun, yet I couldn’t have any fun…I was stressed out and felt guilty about leaving our son and I kept calling home for updates on the baby.
Often, a first babysitter is a family member; maybe a grandparent or aunt or uncle. Even though this first-time event should be exciting, it also could be stressful. If you are lucky enough to be able to leave your child with a trusted family member it might make things much easier to handle. However, not everyone is lucky enough to have family nearby!
As child number two and maybe number three are welcomed to the world, leaving multiple children of different ages with a sitter every now and then, might seem a necessity to keep sanity. 😉
If you are lucky enough to have a found ‘the perfect sitter’ the first time around, you are definitely in the minority! Many people struggle to find good babysitters and when they do, they hold on to them – this mom speaks from experience! It might take many tries to find the perfect fit and while you ‘try out a new sitter’, stress can get the best of you!
Therefore, hiring a new babysitter to relief parenting stress can in itself bring on …more stress!
How can we help you solve this problem?
We offer Honeywell Total Connect™ services for your home! In an earlier article, we joked around a bit with this concept, explaining how fun it can be to check on your dog while you aren’t home as Honeywell Total Connect™ lets you look inside your home with up to six cameras, real-time. We showed several videos of ‘dogs gone wild’.
All joking put aside, Honeywell Total Connect™ can be the peace of mind you need when hiring a babysitter – or nanny or housekeeper.
You will be able to watch in real time, what’s going on inside your home right from your Smartphone or mobile device. You can see the interactions between your babysitter and your child(ren)!
At the same time, we offer another service that you might find useful when employing help in your home.
We offer C.O.P.S monitoring service to our clients; this is a 24 hour service designed to help you, or your babysitter, in time of need! This would include a fire, burglary or medical emergency. Knowing that the necessary help is available with the press of one button, should give you additional peace of mind.
COPS Monitoring specializes in many types of alarm monitoring and delivers professional service with industry-leading response times.
NOTE: The ‘industry-leading response time’ bit is very important, as this will allow you, or your babysitter not only to talk to someone in time of crisis, but also get the help you need in the shortest amount of time possible! We are very proud to partner with C.O.P.S. and to offer this service to our customers.
