Outsourced parenting: Would you pay someone to help potty-train your child?
(CBS 58) – A growing trend has parents reaching into their pockets instead of opening “how-to” books.
It’s called outsourced parenting.
Parents are paying to have someone else carry out tasks like potty-training, baby-proofing a home and picking out children’s clothes.
According to USA Today, one woman, who owns a potty-training company in New York, charges parents anywhere from $2,000-$3,000. She has clients in Virginia, California, London and Dubai.
Professional childproofers can find dangerous spots in your home. One company charges $119 for a three-hour initial meeting.
