A Virginia Babysitting-Cop, 50 Years Strong

I thought it was so fun to see a Washington Post news story about the Aurora Hills Babysitting Co-op earlier this month. This co-op has been in operation for 50 years! Just think of that. The original kids who were babysat by the organizers of this co-op could have grandchildren who are currently involved in the co-op. What a great testament to the power of neighborly cooperation. Take a few minutes to read the article, and then get inspired to start your own co-op. Who knows? Maybe your grandkids will be participating someday in the group you organize.

  1. I would LOVE to see the bylaws for this group! I am forming a coop with 10-14 other families in my area. We had a couple of meetings to help us decide on a point system and set of rules. I've written a pretty comprehensive set of bylaws but think it would be so helpful to see the bylaws of such an established group. BTW I have your book and it has been a great resource in these planning stages.
