My couple wants to go on a date, they have 1 child (child, not baby). I'm assuming that I can't leave the child home alone, but can't figure out how to get a babysitter for the child. Using the phone I checked 'services' but there was no option to hire a babysitter -which in my opinion is stupid and unrealistic. Anyway.. was wondering how do I get a babysitter? Is it the same when a couple has a baby and the child is automatically warped into daycare? or when the couple goes on their date a babysitter automatically shows up? Or in this game, children can stay home alone?
