We love Kara. She has been babysitting for my 15-month-old son for the past year. She is full of positive energy. She is always prompt. She is smart, confident and communicates well with both me and my son. My son smiles from ear to ear when she walks in the door (which wasn't always the case).

He was very difficult when he was an infant, and Kara was calm and patient with his incessant tantrums. Fortunately, she tolerated the challenge and eventually developed a fabulous relationship with my little man.

I can't say enough about Kara (and my gratitude to sittercity for helping me to find her)!
