Traditionally, the day after Thanksgiving is the biggest day of the year for Holiday shopping. Parents can go shopping without the worries of bringing the kids when they find babysitters. Sharon Graff-Radell, owner of FindTheBestNanny.com, says, "Moms and Dads can take the time to shop knowing that the kids are home safe with a babysitter."
FindTheBestNanny.com offers tips for St. Louis parents on how to find, screen and hire babysitters safely for your family. First thing parents need to do when finding a sitter is to determine what days and hours they need help. If you plan to be an early bird shopper let your sitter know ahead of time or maybe offer to have her stay the night prior. Next, parents need to prepare their children. Let them know who will be there when they wake up and the plans for the day. Finally, inform the sitter of your children’s schedule for the day and their likes and dislikes. Preparing your sitter and your kids will make for a smooth transition.
Now you can have fun and shop on Black Friday without the little ones in tow.
