We are so excited to introduce our newest downloadable resource: The Babysitter Guide. Putting your kids in the care of someone else can feel scary if you’re not able to clearly communicate your values and expectations. We created this resource as a starting point for communicating the most important information to caregivers — whether that’s food allergies, approved tech devices or how the babysitter can get in touch with you.

This portion of the Babysitter Guide gives you a chance to list out approved apps, video games, TV shows and movies. We encourage you to be specific here, while also providing plenty of options. This part of the Babysitter Guide is especially important to complete with your kids or at the very least communicate with your kids. If they know what to expect in terms of approved shows, movies, video games, etc., it can help avoid a meltdowns or difficult conversations between your child and the caregiver.
This is the section we are most excited about because it includes topics that are often awkward to broach with caregivers. Why is that? Because the ways we interact with technology are very personal. Communicating boundaries can sometimes feel like we’re passing judgement. Our hope is this guide relieves you of those feelings and gives you the confidence to clearly (and warmly) communicate your expectations.
Here are some examples for this section:
