Second thoughts about babysitter. CodingMommyAsh Due March 21 (girl); 2 kids; 1 angel baby; Japan 357 posts

Im trying to find a qualified baby sitter as soon as possible.
I come across someone who seems to fit all the qualifications and seems like a nice person, except she's saying she doesn't have a drivers license and can't drive. 

It doesn't sound right
Shes saying she has a driver who is available at anytime. This sounds a little bit strange. She is the only person I've found who is available in the schedule and qualified but something doesn't seem right. What do you think?

I would need to see a form of identification either way when i hire someone to babysit my kids, because I don't want them running off with my kids or stealing my stuff.

Go with your gut. If she can't provide any sort of identification for you to run Anna kgeound check, I would pass her up. Not worth risking your kids safety.

If she's a responsible adult, she'll at least have a state identification which usually looks like a driver's license. 

I know there's a few perfectly good reasons why a person doesn't drive but I personally could never do it! Angry

Lots of people dont drive. My best friends husband doesn't but he has a full time job. Its not that weird. Usually people who dont drive have a state id. If not, its not that hard to get one usually.

If you live in an area with public transportation it's not that weird but otherwise I find it completely strange to willingly rely on others to get you where you need to go. As an adult with a family especially.

 I would have to know who this driver is and interview him or her too. Not what I'd be looking for, especially not knowing either person personally. I'd kindly decline and say sorry this is a one person job. She's wouldn't be qualified for all I'm looking for.

I would decline. If there's an emergency and they need to drive the kids somewhere, I'd need them to be able to drive. I'd need to be 100% happy with whoever is looking after my kids, and posting this post shows you clearly aren't. I'd keep looking until you find the perfect person!
