Sitster is a great app for parents. Sitster makes it quick and easy to arrange babysitting amongst a group of your trusted friends, using a points system so its free and fair.
Create a Sitster group and invite your friends to join. You can be a member of as many groups as you like (e.g. NCT friends, school parents, neighbours) and you only need 3 or more friends for each group.
You can choose how many points the members of your groups start with (we recommend at least 5). 1 point = 1 hour (or part hour) of babysitting. You use points when friends sit for you and you earn points when you sit for your friends (and feel really good about yourself for helping them out).
Sitster makes it quick and easy to request and schedule sits. And if you need a sitter but have run out of points or youve got a busy few months ahead and you know you wont be able to return the favour Sitster gives you the option to pay in cash instead of points.
If youre already in a babysitting group youll love this no more spreadsheets, faffing about calling and emailing friends when you need a sitter or losing track of peoples points.
And if youre not already in a babysitting group this will change your life! Free babysitting, happy kids and happy friends.
Say goodbye to expensive babysitters and feeling awkward or guilty about asking friends to sit for you and say hello to more freedom and the warm glow of giving your friends a helping hand.
Parents, were in this together - lets give each other a break. Welcome to the Sitsterhood!
