DadLabs Ep. 257 the Lab - Show your sitter some love, appropriately love of course. Show her respect and courtesy by following tips offered by the Dads in the Lab. Hear dos and don'ts from our panel of experienced sitters. Learn to avoid sitter pet peeves. Remember, sitter retention is key to a happy marriage. Share your thoughts on "nannycams", do you tell your babysittter or not? This episode brought to you by Sittercity.com.
Here are the DadLabs recommended pre-sitter preparations:
* Negotiate the price ahead of time and put it away in an envelope.
* Prepare an emergency contact list.
* Prep your kids for the sitter.
* Bring out the babysitter goodies that you only bring out when the sitter arrives.
* Make sure you have some food in the house for the babysitter.
And finally, watch in horror as DadLabs crashes and burns over the "manny" controversy. No Joey Buttafuoco or "Get off the babysitter, Joel" jokes permitted. Thank you, The Management.
