Being a working parent is a great challenge. To balance a career and kids is a tough task. Although raising children is the most joyous experience in a parent’s life, yet parents who need and/or want to work regularly face the dilemma of balancing child care and job commitments. Records show that after child-birth there is a humongous drop of mothers dropping out from their regular jobs. However, survey shows that they would want to return to their jobs if they could get a reliable way to ensure that their children are taken care during their work hours.
The best solution to this problem is hiring a professional care-giver or babysitter who can constantly care and administer the little ones throughout the day when the parents can concentrate on their jobs. However, the inhibitions are many when it comes to hiring a babysitter- are they trustworthy and safe? How much experienced are they? How can a background check be done? How will the availability of the caregivers be checked? How much will it cost?
All credible questions! The answers to which lies in the on-demand child care apps.
