For working parents, deciding whom to trust to look after a child in their home can be a decision fraught with anxiety, not to mention legal issues. From the #1 magazine for women with children, here is reassuring advice and information that explores all the issues of at-home childcare, including: How to find and interview prospective babysitters and define their responsibilities; The legal and financial implications of hiring "off the books;" How to determine an appropriate wage; How to handle raises and vacations; How to tell if your babysitter is doing a good-

or a bad-job ; Resolving conflicts and differences.

While helping parents decide what kind of at-home caregiver they need, this book emphasizes the importance of the relationships among family, child, and caregiver, and its pages reflect the voice and perspective of each party. A special bonus section called "Welcome to Our Family" allows readers to customize information about their families, such as emergency numbers, a child's meal and habits, and more.
