Hello! We have gone thru 2 nanny's, the last one being abusive verbally, and phsyically. I was wondering for those of you who have a nanny or mother's helper what Co did you through. I have 3 tots ages 8, 6, and 3. My hubby works long hours, and I need lots of help. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy">:

I nannyed for 2 years, and how I got started was just looking in the capital gazette. You could advertise in your local newspaper. When I applied for the family I worked for they had already gotten dozens of calls. I would suggest interviewing lots of people and checking all references. You could also post an ad on <a href="http://www.craigslist.org" target="_blank">www.craigslist.org</a>. If you go through an agency I thing you are looking at a lot of fees involved, but don't take my word for it, I called a few years ago. The agency was called A Choice Nanny. Good luck!<br><br>

I have someone currently from my church. She's 17 and I find she's more of a mommy's helper than a sitter. I don't leave her for long periods of time without me or husband here just incase she needs something. basically, I think she's very nice and good hearted but doesn't really know how to entertain two kids at the same time! anyhow if you do find a good place t find sitter/helpers please post it here for the rest of us. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

I have a 12 year old homeschooled mother's helper. We already knew her family when I asked her, but you could ask on the local homeschool yahoo groups.

Hi Girls,<br>
I don't see High school girls or younger as a mother's helper more as babysitter's. I'm looking for someone close to my age, that is responsible, drives, and perform mommy duties that I need help with.<br><br>
Thank you for input though!
