Kristen’s Bio

Hi! My name is Kristen. I love kids and want to find a family I can watch for your date nights. I am currently a technology consultant in Washington, D.C. and live in Vienna, VA. I was formerly a long-term substitute teacher at a high school and have worked at several children's camp as an instructor and inclusion specialist.
I am a graduate of James Madison University in International Business and Modern Foreign Languages.  I have two younger sisters, 21 and 18, who I helped take care of and babysat since I was in sixth grade, as well as a dog named Ollie  I love interacting with children of all ages.  In PA I babysat for a family with 5 extremely active children ranging from ages 1 to 9, so I am ready for anything!  I also was a dance teacher for young children when I was in high school, and I have tutored children as well.

Well our kid had a fun day with kristen and the house didn't burn down... However, I have to say that I was disappointed to come home and see that he was up past his bed time and had been riding his scooter INSIDE the house on our WOOD floors! And she put the puppy in the crate with her leash which I now have to replace since she chewed through it... Not too happy.

Provider's Response

I am sorry you arrived home unhappy. I did my best to help your child into bed at his bedtime. I hope with future sitters you can lend helpful recommendations for how to best achieve the bedtime goal when child refuses to abide by the steps to get him into bed.

Also, laying out household rules beforehand to avoid misunderstanding is also helpful. I certainly would have removed puppy's leash as well as removed the scooter from the house. If there is a scooter inside a house I assume there will be no damages, as scooters are generally kept outside if they are meant for outdoors. I've also never had a puppy chew on his own leash. We like leaving our puppy's leash on to be able to get him away from things he should not be doing.

I'm sorry and please accept my apologies for your unpleasant experience three years ago.
