A new caregiver is an important addition to any family. Whether your child needs full-time care while you work or a sitter for your occasional evenings out, there is a lot you can do to lessen your own feelings of anxiety and to help make your child’s time with the sitter more enjoyable.
My New Baby-Sitter presents a variety of real-life care-giving situations to reassure children and to prepare them for what to expect. In addition, a “Note to Parents” provides advice on choosing a caregiver for your child.
With its vivid full-color photographs; clear, supportive text for children; and a practical, comprehensive guide for parents, this informative book by an editor at Parents magazine will help you, your child, and the caregiver develop a solid, trusting, and rewarding relationship.
