Karen worked for our family for 3 years. My twin Boys were ages 5-8. She was always on time and if there was a conflict in scheduling we worked it out ahead of time. Karen did everything I asked her to and my children loved her. She picked them up from school, gave them some play time and a snack, homework was done before I got home from work. On special occasions and weekends Karen followed our bedtime routine. Once in a while she would gladly do some light house chores without complaint. Clear communication is key and we rarely had any issues.

So we interviewed and hired Karen, did references and everything. She started and quit the same week. All day while I’m at work she will be calling texting asking what to do as if nothing was explained to her. Now I don’t have an issue with phone calls but it was just too much for every little thing. She didn’t know what to do even if I wriote info down In a book for her as well. So after she quit we decided to give her another chance but this time for a few hours while we did Laundry. The same thing happened. Our baby had colic but any experienced sitter with infants should know how to do some basic things but it seemed Like she was confused all the time. She quit because she wanted more hours and more money but could not even work one day with knowing what to do with a baby. She knew what the hours were going to be but quit when she didn’t get more. I was very confused. The second time when she came Mayahs colic was gone but she still was cranky with Karen and I figured then maybe she isn’t fond of her or she was just getting frustrated because Karen was confused?... idk. Nevertheless, I won’t recommend her. Very unreliable and you really can’t trust her because she will be all over the place when you leave her with your child. I know she tried with ours but it didn’t seem like she knew what she was doing. I did genuinely like her as a person - very friendly and sweet but not what I expected with my baby.
