Important Information for Your Baby Sitters

 

When someone else cares for your children, follow these important safety tips which were provided by the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service:

• Talk to your baby sitter about your family's fire escape plan.
• Show your baby sitter where your smoke alarms are located. 
• Remind baby sitters to stay IN the kitchen when anything is cooking.
• Remind baby sitters sitters that you do not allow smoking in or around your home or the use of candles.
• If baby sitters will be responsible for watching your children at the pool or giving them a bath, make it clear that all eyes are on your children and not a phone, IPAD or any other distractions. While it is recommended to have a cell phone at the pool in the event of an emergency, be sure to turn it on "silent" so it won't be a distraction when kids are swimming.
• Remind baby sitters never to leave the children unattended -- at the pool, at home or outside.

Always leave emergency information near the phone and include your full home address and phone number in the event your sitter needs to call 911 and also a trusted neighbor's name and phone number.

Excellent rules for babysitters to follow. Especially, the electronic devices. They get so involved with their iPhones and tablets they can easily forget about their job.

Roy Kelley great tips. I especially appreciated the pool tips. I was a swim instructor in the past and have had to rescue kids (while taking care of another weak swimmer) because of inattentive people watching them. It is far too easy for something bad to happen--and it happens fast.

Good advice Roy Kelley . My kids are 16 and 14. They have been thee priority in our lives. They have had a baby sitter once in their lives... once, period.

My children are all grown now.  Heck, even my grandkids are nearly grown, with the youngest being 12.  However, those tips are important, and I'm likely to have great grandchildren one day, and that information will remain valuable.

This is excellent advice. When I use to watch other people's children cell phones weren't around. I didn't have that distraction.

I had good babysitters and very attentive. The kids loved them and told us everything that went on.

Thanks for this great list, Roy.  While it's been a while since I needed the services of a baby sitter, I know many who do.
