Sitter-Team.de is help for self-help and promotes the community about 1,000 applications since the launch of the sitter-Team.de in September 2009 and prove a week almost 100 new users: fill a large gap with their idea for an Internet-based organization of child care and baby groups through the networking of like-minded parents the initiators. Despite the goal of the Federal Government, to cover up 2013 35% of the care needs of under three year olds, the majority remains without secured day care? Sitter-team members of the first hour to confirm that to find other parents, it could entrust his child even in the short term, had become totally trouble-free with the platform. Sitter-Team.de could encourage already parents in the first three months of its existence in 140 German cities, to help free of charge and each other with childcare. Even friendships have already developed among parents in the neighborhood by sitter team. “I was formerly often alone with my daughter and I not just once wanted to get to know other mothers”, reported Elena from Berlin. As their 15-month-old daughter to the playground is too small, this option for they fell away.
“One day I saw a posting of the sitter team then randomly and logged me on the same day.” That was the end of September. Since then, the 33 year old native Russian has made contact with many mothers and founded his own team. “For me, it is particularly important that my daughter has the opportunity to have contact with other children and play. To do something in the team just much more fun.” The principle is simple: on mothers and fathers can login to other families in the neighborhood to get to know and to coordinate child care each other. Whether to regular support in everyday life, or spontaneously for a night, which decide every “sitter-team”. Claudius Kohrt and Stefan Schmidt, the founder of sitter team, get positive feedback Mothers and fathers, but also by organisations, associations and public institutions.
“More and more people realize now how important it is in the anonymity of today turn back to the community and to help each other. Often there is only a small idea, just to get the ball rolling”, Claudius Kohrt judged the previous success. Founded in June 2009, has made it sitter team to the task, to bring together communities closer. The anonymity of the modern metropolis helps ensure that many don’t know their neighbor. The chance to meet like-minded parents on the playground is indeed given, but relatively small. At the same time, the disintegration of traditional family structures through high geographical mobility and rising divorce rate, the supply of scientists more difficult. Sitter-team vision: In the future contact micro-networks in many areas of life in the place of traditional families and support where they no longer can it. Credit: Vadim Belyaev-2011.
