Why We Love This Gift: Childcare is expensive. It is a true budget-buster. These cards allow busy parents to select a babysitter with whom they are comfortable.Anyone with a child will sometimes need a babysitter. UrbanSitter allows parents to make arrangements for the care of their children as they respond to whatever they must. It allows them to make an arrangement wherein they don't feel indebted or obligated to reciprocate. For a bereaved parent, space to mourn is important. Similarly, unemployed parents are stressed and they need to time update a c.v. and prepare to interview. Further, spouses of the deployed face multiple stressors every day. Give them some time off by providing them with some childcare.
What to Express in Your Card: You have a lot on your plate. I was thinking of you. I figured you might need some time to deal with [situation]. I thought you might need some coverage with [name of child/ren]. I hope this helps. I am sending you love.
