Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) February 07, 2013 - SeekingSitters is a national, online babysitting referral service that does all of the work for parents, including in-house private investigators that screen all sitters. Just in time for Valentine's Day, SeekingSitters shares the top ten tips to “Book the Best Babysitter" to keep the kids happy and safe.
With Valentine’s Day coming up, parents everywhere are reminded of the importance of scheduling regular “Date nights”. According to a study by the National Marriage Project, couples who schedule weekly date nights or time alone each week were 3.5 times more likely to report being “very happy” in their marriage than couples who did not.
Having a safe, reliable sitter readily available makes it easier for parents to schedule that time together. That’s why [SeekingSitters focuses on finding and screening the top sitters across the country. Top traits include finding a sitter who’s dependable and responsible, interacts with their kids and knows first aid, according to a child safety expert.
“Moms and dads want to know their kids will be spending quality time with someone special who interacts with them with special activities and games,” Adrienne Kallweit, founder and owner of SeekingSitters, said. “They don’t want to worry that the sitter is texting or talking on their phone and plopping the kids in front of the TV. Sitters need to be engaged with the kids. When this happens, parents can have fun together instead of feeling guilty.”
It was once a struggle for Kallweit and her husband to schedule date nights because they couldn’t readily find safe, reliable sitters. So, they found a solution by starting the full-service, on-demand babysitting referral service SeekingSitters in 2004 to help other parents.
