So, I hope you’re ready to do some math with me…It’s not a complicated equation, but I think you might agree:
15B < 200TSMD
$15/hour for a babysitter is less than the $200++ that a therapist, shrink, marriage counselor or divorce lawyer will charge.
Another way to look at it is:
15B + Free Time = Happy Parents
$15/hour for a babysitter + time to do what you want = mental sanity and happiness
