The term "sitter" usually brings to mind a teenage girl who watches a child or three while the parents go out to a movie or dinner or some sort. There may be an exciting brush with car thieves, a man with a hook for a hand, gangs, and Thor, if said sitter and children happen to be in a particular film from 1987. However, a sitter might be necessary for an elderly family member as well, or a pet. While there are many youthful adults who don't have children, due to the other two types of dependents, it's likely they might still need a sitter. With Care.com, finding a sitter for a child or five, or a dependent mother or father, or Rover or Mr. Fluffy becomes a snap. Alternatively, those willing to watch over a child or four, the elderly or a pet can apply as a sitter.
