Do you, or did you, have to pay a babysitter to go out at night, or do you have a relation who does this free of charge?

Yes, we used to pay a babysitter and our first one was Shelley Taylor Smith -the swimmer -who at the time was only 14 and lived 2 doors down from us.

My parents lived in another state so they could not help out, so we always had to pay a babysitter at night when we went out.

So far we have not had to as my mother-in-law typically does it free of charge. She's very obliging, so it's very convenient for us.

I've never paid a babysitter no. In fact I've never been out without the kids ...
We've never used a baby sitter whenever we want to go out at night. As a result we don't have a night life. (I wouldn't be interesting in having an active night life anyways).
Yes when my son was young I used a Babysitting agency when my parents were not available, was on my own with him when I was 27 and went out quite a bit

I would never trust outsiders to look after my boys.
I was blessed to have my mother, and later one of my son's when I had my 3rd son many years later.
I just could not trust anyone who was not family.
Never! I have always had family living not too far from us so when my husband and I go on 'date nights' or attend functions where we are unable to take our kids, a family member would always look after them.
I don't have children so don't need to worry about getting a babysitter. But as a teenager I often babysat for neighbours

I have not had children but when I was in my early 20's for a bit of extra money I worked with a baby sitting agency.
We were getting my parents to watch the kids when we went to trivia. It was so nice to be out without the children, but it did mean that one of us couldn't drink as we had to collect the kids on our way home. I am giving very serious consideration to paying for a babysitter to come to our house so that we can have a big night out. Given that we are planning to have another baby soon we are going to have limited opportunity!

No, never a babysitter. I have a friend who minds my kids in case I have to go out. Otherwise, they either go out with us, or we all stay home! :(
We rarely went anywhere without our son when he was very little. But with all our families living so far away,we DID occasionally get the lovely young lass at the end of the street to babysit.I don't know who had more fun: our son or her!!!!
No, never, ever - not even when we lived in the bush away from extended family.
Always thought that our kids were our responsibility and that we wanted the very best care available for them - us!
They are now 24 & 22. It all slips by so fast.
No night life for me.
by Gia
Yes, but very rarely. We paid a professional baby sitter, as I would NOT leave our child/children with their father's parents, as they were just the pits, in everyway!

I didn't have any relies available.
Nope. Never. No how, no way.

Never had to pay a babysitter when my son was young. Either my mother or mother-in-law was always happy to have their grandson if my husband or I were attending a function, party or just a movie. We would occasionally take our son with us if we were going to a party at a friend's house as he would join their children in bed when he got sleepy if it was a late night.
No, we never used a paid babysitter. We didn't bother going out often, mainly because of my husband's shift-work, but when we did, his in-laws would babysit, at their house.

Sorry, MY in-laws would babysit.
