I remember when my mom used a babysitter for my brother and I when we were small. My mom worked the evening shift at the nursing home in the town we lived in. My mom had a friend, whose daughter was a high school kid trying to make some extra money. The first couple of times she babysat us, she was cool, fun and i liked her but one night my mom left for work and my brother was upset and wouldn't stop crying. She ended up sending him to bed with no supper that night. Once my mom found that out, let's just say she never came to our house again after that! LOL Thank God, that was the only thing she did. Imagine her getting so upset with my brother and hitting him?
Crazy to imagine that right? Well, believe it or not, it happens so often with babysitters, nannies, and even day care workers. So many case of child abuse have been on the news the last few years and these nannies who are supposed to be like a mother figure to these children when their mother is absent, were not taking their jobs seriously. Children were being beat and mistreated and they were too young to let anyone know! How sad. It makes me sick the way other people can treat children.
So with all this happening some people actually set up hidden cameras in their house so they can see what is going on when they're not there. Alot of families find very disturbing things on these nanny cams and end up firing their nannies or even worse getting them arrested and charged! These kind of things being spread all around the internet, makes me so skeptical of me ever sending my children to daycare and if a babysitter is needed, my family watches my children. If i had no choice and had to settle on a babysitter or nanny, you bet your butt i would be putting cameras all over the place! I would make them visible too, so they know not to even try to mess with my kids!I do not take any chances with strangers, especially with all these child abuse and child cruelty cases happening so often.
Has anyone heard of these horrible things going on? Does anyone have a nanny or use a babysitter? If so, do you use a nanny cam when they are with your children?
