Is it teething time for your little one?
This parents list of demands for a babysitter is causing quite the stir online

Getting a good babysitter who you trust around your precious children can be a frustrating, and time-consuming task.

You may require them to have their own car or driving licence, previous experience in child-care or even just a good reference.

However, this parent may have taken it slightly too far with their list of demands...

The post was shared to Facebook and has had plenty of retweets from people from all walks of life; most of them are ridiculing the parent for her long list of demands.

The search includes the fact that ideally, the babysitter would also be a 'Trump fan', would have zero tattoos, nine years of babysitting experience or a BA degree in childcare, their own car, and be a native English speaker.

The potential taker would also have to be available 24/7, including on week-ends, and must be able to take emergency calls at any time. The parent also mentions that; 'I will be running your name through databases'.

The list od demands is rather extreme. We're can't imagine anyone would have the time to have a second language to teach children, nine-years of babysitting experience or a degree, be CPR certified, can afford snacks, is tolerant of two pitt-bulls and no history of driving tickets.

Not to mention have perfect and 100 percent attendance. 

What do you think, is it crossing a major line beyond belief, or are they rational demands?
