A lot of parents tell us, “We don’t really use babysitters. We just don’t go out much, or do things for ourselves.” And to that, we say, “but what if you could? What if you had free babysitting?”
Komae is babysitting reinvented. You get to keep your dollars while your kids play for free at a friend’s house, opening up a whole new experience for parents across the country. The kids have fun and burn energy. Mom and dad have time to refresh. And when the family is back together, everyone is happier for it.
Here’s a list of 25 ways parents can use their new found free time, when they have free babysitting with Komae:
- Take a nap… duh.
- Enjoy a hot coffee at your local coffee shop while reading a good book.
- Go on weekly date nights with your spouse.
- Take a quiet stroll through Target. Try on clothes. Freshen up your wardrobe!
- Meet a friend for lunch and enjoy some adult conversation.
- Clean your house without the kids being one step behind in making a new mess.
- Set up for the kid’s birthday parties and let them come home to all the decorations being a surprise!
- Enjoy a day at the salon to get a fresh look.
- Volunteer in your community.
- Have special one-on-one time with one of your kids while the others play with friends.
