Check for substance abuse in caregivers

Choosing a babysitter for your children is hard, and the prevalence of substance use and abuse makes it even harder. When parents are screening potential babysitters, it is important to check for any warning signs of drug or alcohol use. You may want to seek out references or ask for a background check or licenses. For more tips on choosing the right babysitter, read the VIRTUS® article “Is Your Babysitter or Caregiver Safe?” at lacatholics.org/did-you-know/.
