    HI Moms! Quick question about the Kids Night Out program. What happens if my little ones cry when the sitter gets there? They will be 4 and almost 3. We've never left them with a total stranger before and really want to utilize this program.

    Hi Deborah,

    Welcome to the Moms Panel!  I've never used the Kids Night Out service, but am considering it for a trip this fall so I can participate in the Expedition Everest 5K.  From everything I've read, Kids Night Out comes readily prepared with age appropriate activities and games.  They have oodles of experience with children, so I'm sure a crying child is nothing new for them.

    If your children seem very upset and uncomfortable, I think you will probably know at the time just how you should handle it.  Some kids warm up quickly after the initial separation, and some simply won't.  You know your kids best, and since you're already thinking about it I am sure you will make the best decision.  I think I will let my kids know they are having a "play date" prior to the arrival time, so they are somewhat prepared.  If they give a little grief, or show separation anxiety I know that my kids typically are the kind to warm up a phone call a half-hour after I leave will let me know that they are okay or that I need to change my plans.

    Good luck, have a great time!
