1. MORE “ME-TIME”
In most cases, we only hire childcare services when we have an important appointment or because something unforeseeable is about to happen. But what about having a little more "me-time", isn't that also an important appointment with yourself? We think so! Think about your well-being from time to time!
"Look at your child and you know how you feel."
We fully agree with this quote. Children, are empathic beings, they are sensitive and let themselves be influenced by the feelings of other people. So, if you are in a good mood, radiate balance, these feelings will automatically be transferred to your children.
2. MORE "US-TIME"
"Me-time" is great and let's admit it, it's needed. What is also of course arguably of equal importance is quality time with your partner, whether that is time at the beach uninterrupted, a long lunch with a few bottles of great rosé or a romantic weekend away to re-connect. It is something that is easily forgotten in the hectic lives we all lead.
Happy parents = happy children.
3. BENEFITS FOR THE CHILD
Often you can hear parents talking about how happy their children are when they hear that the babysitter is coming by again. The babysitter knows new games, activities and is usually motivated to provide the children with a few hours of great entertainment. The main advantage: the babysitter greatly enhances the child's social skills!
4. CAREER (RE-)ENTRY
Single parents are often faced with many unresolved questions regarding their career. When would I like to start working again? How many hours a week do I want to work? Can I possibly even work from home? And most importantly: what is the situation regarding childcare? Especially if the children are still too young to attend a day care center or kindergarten, a babysitter or a nanny can offer an alternative.
They are usually more flexible and can also step in spontaneously if the child is ill and cannot attend the daycare center or kindergarten, for example. But even if you work in your home office, a babysitter can be a great relief.
5. ADDITIONAL SUPPORT
In everyday family life there is always plenty to do: the household has to be done, the children have to be raised and money has to be earned as well. We could continue this list forever! That's why we think that families, especially single parents, deserve some additional support. A suitable babysitter can provide this support.
If everything is discussed and agreed in advance, the babysitters can also take over small household tasks. These include cooking, cleaning up or helping the children with their homework. It is important to make an exact arrangement so that no false expectations arise!
