Mom leaves her baby with a teenager for a few minutes: Seconds later she gets a picture and breaks down

Leaving your children with someone you trust is not always easy. Some of us are lucky to have family nearby and others have to trust the recommendations of other parents which can be stressful.

It’s so important to have that go-to person you can call last minute and ask for their help taking care of your child. You just never know what’s going to happen in your daily schedule where you might need this helping hand.
