As a parent you’re likely to have a list of ‘things to do’ that are as long as your arm (or as long as two arms). This is where the Helpr function on the Bubble app comes into play. It allows you to post a job that you are either too busy to do yourself or simply need a hand with. We surveyed a group of Bubble parents and asked them what they’d used Helpr for and how it had supported them.

Here’s a few suggestions:

Dinner party help – these can be especially stressful if you’re trying to organise everything at the last minute or if you just want to be able to relax and not spend all your time sorting out drinks and food. Using a sitter means you can get on with the fun bit – catching up with friends instead.

Helping with deliveries – sometimes you’re not home when a delivery is due to arrive and if it’s something important then you can book a sitter and they can receive your delivery at home instead. It’s especially good if you have other stuff to do and don’t want to stay at home waiting for it to arrive.

House sitting- if you’re going away then why not book a sitter to look after your home so you can relax and know everything is safe?

Cleaning/sorting/ironing – let’s face it…these are often the tasks that we dread doing because they take up time and are never-ending. Why not book a sitter with Helpr and you can nail the domestic admin? A sitter could also help you sort through bags or a room that has turned into a permanent dumping ground. If you work together then you can get things done far more quickly right?

Dog walking- we saw a surge of dog ownership over lockdown but what happens now that you’re working and need to walk the dog three times a day? Use Helpr so your dog has been walked and you’ve ticked another thing off your to-do list.

Children’s parties – they may have been quieter of late but now that they’re back on again don’t you wish you had an extra pair of hands to help out with the food/drinks/entertainment? Kid’s parties are often stressful because we’re trying to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves and manage any disagreements or tantrums that arise. If you book a sitter then you can ask them to help you with some of the practical side so you aren’t trying to achieve the impossible.

Helpr can provide a super helpful resource whatever you’re trying to accomplish.

In fact we are continually hearing about new and innovative ways parents are using it to support their everyday challenges.

Why not book a Helpr with Bubble today?
