Choosing a babysitter or nanny for the kids is always a tough decision. As a parent, you worry about all the influence they have over your children while you are away at work. Most people would prefer to have ‘Grandma or Grandpa‘ watch their kids, after all, they raised you and you know what you’re getting! So maybe this is not such a bad idea for people who do not have a parent who is here, willing or able to watch the kids…“Rent A Grandma” service!
There is an actual company that only hires out grandmas to parents looking for a babysitter, but when I went to check out their website today, it was not working. It sure seems like a really good idea though, because grandmas tend to be way more trustworthy than that teenager from up the street, they make the perfect sitters and there’s a good chance you won’t catch them texting or letting your kid do anything too dangerous. Even better would be if they helped cook & clean too!
Do you employ a “Granny Nanny” and how is it working out for you?
