Take a look and let us know: are there any statistics here that surprise you? Anything here you can relate to, as either a parent or a babysitter?

Just reading through the infographic and noting how important the interaction between the children and the sitter is paramount to making the whole experience successful.
I appreciate that sitters value children who are open to management and make for less demanding supervision times.
In my experience we have also noted that a certain level of “adorability” always helps recruit new sitters and in the same way resistant children don’t encourage new sitters to re-book.
Nice work, thanks for bringing it to our attention…
