The Luther Family
Fort Worth$15/hr  |  1 kid
Hello everyone. My wife and I are looking for someone to watch are son Grayson. Right now we have a family member watching him, but are looking to interview their replacement for when the time comes. You would watch our son at our home and my wife will be there as well. My wife is able to work from home, but as you know it’s hard to get anything done with a little one. Our ideal candidate is someone who takes the COVID-19 pandemic seriously and understands our sins health as well as ours is our priority. We took our son out of daycare to lower his risk exposure and expect his care taker to be as well.

So Grayson is now 20 months old and his personality is beginning to shine. He is full of energy and interested in everything. He can do everything except talk right now, but knows many words and will do respond to your requests......well sometimes. He is bit tough at nap time, but when he’s down he sleeps well. He loves to play and show off his toys. We have recently added a dog to the family so it can a bit wild at times and “No” or “Stop that” is said many times throughout the day.

So right now we are looking for someone that would start in 2021 around March. The days would be during the week (we are considering 3 days, but could be 5) and would be 5-8 hrs daily (also still discussing that). We are looking to interview and get to know some interested individuals so we can make appropriate plans.

Look forward to speaking with you

Understand Babysitter Responsibilities in Fort Worth, TX

Before beginning the search for a babysitter, it’s important to understand what you’re looking for and if a babysitter is the right choice for your child care needs. There are lots of benefits to hiring a babysitter such as getting the flexibility of having some more time for yourself or with your partner. When hiring a babysitter, first, you should explore the differences between a nanny and a babysitter. If you’re looking for occasional child care, babysitters are the right choice for you, but if you’re looking for more frequent care, a nanny may be better for your needs.

From there, you can think about what you expect your babysitter to handle so that you can create a profile for nannies to reach out to you. The boundaries for babysitters’ duties can vary from family to family. However, in general, a babysitter is responsible for making sure your kids’ needs are met, including things like ensuring they have opportunities to play and be active. When tasks go beyond child care, for example to housekeeping, laundry, or meal preparation, it’s good practice to communicate these expectations with your babysitter before hiring them. Along with the different duties that you ask for, experience and location in Fort Worth can impact how much you pay your babysitter.

Fort Worth Babysitter Interviews

Once you start connecting with prospective babysitters, the next step is to conduct an interview. To make things a bit easier, here’s a list of some babysitter interview questions to consider asking:

  • Do you have experience being a babysitter?
  • What sort of household tasks are you open and comfortable doing?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Are you trained in First Aid or CPR in Texas?
  • Do you have a Texas driver’s license? Do you own a car?
  • How do you handle tantrums? Can you share an experience disciplining children?

During the hiring process, it’s essential to ask for references and by asking their references questions you gain a better understanding of they will fit in your family. As you get closer to hiring a nanny, be sure to run a background check to ensure your kids are in good hands. When evaluating a babysitter that you’re considering hiring, make sure you’re setting the foundation for a good relationship with your babysitter. You can do this by being clear about your expectations around babysitter responsibilities and compensation, and of course, by being friendly and welcoming!

And of course, as you learn how to hire a babysitter, Nanny Lane's nanny services are here to help you along the way.
