Me. I don't really allow other people to babysit my children. I do, maybe 4 times a year max, have my kids stay with my mom or brother for a couple hours so my husband and I can go out, but other than that, no one babysits my kids but us. My kids have never been in a daycare center, and never would. I even volunteer at my daughters school simply because I worry about her being there without me. Call me nuts, but as long as I know my kids are safe, then I can be happy. And if they aren't with me, they aren't completely safe.

Realatives, I am a daycare provider and trust other providers but I would always try to ask family first.

Relatives. When I was young I use to babysit for a lot of kids around my area and I neverthought much of it. Now that I am a parent I find that I have a hard time leaving my children with ANYONE! My husband and I went to the Superbowl in Febuary and my mother flew in to watch our children. I was nervous about leaving her, a mother of four, with my two. My problem is that the only relative that I can get to watch my children sits at the computer the whole time we are gone and never cleans up after herself or the children. So when I come home from a relaxing time out with my husband I have my hands full immediately trying to damage control.

I would like to have relatives to do that. But since we live so far away from any, I just stay home and watch him myself.
