What qualifications do you look for in a baby sitter? I'm not talking about daily child care. I mean who do you trust with your children for an average night out on the town with your spouse? Would you trust a teen stranger if you knew they took a baby-sitting class? How old does someone need to be before you'd trust them with your child?

AND!....What on Earth is the going rate for baby sitters now? I asked the baby sitting class instructor in my area and they said, "$2.00 per hour per child" Is this normal in your area?

Thanks! Super Mom
