Should families employing nannies use a nanny cam?
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) February 26, 2011
Families take all the necessary steps in vetting their new nanny; conduct several interviews, call the references, do a nanny background check, sign a nanny contract and yet the family is still understandably anxious leaving their baby with a new nanny.
What steps can be taken to assure families that their baby is being well cared for when they’re not home?
- Drop in unexpectedly at different times of the day
- Carefully watch your child’s mood when the nanny arrives and when you arrive home
- Use a nanny cam
Many families feel that a nanny cam may be too “intrusive” and an “invasion of privacy” and will create mistrust with their new nanny. We think just the opposite will occur. In almost all cases the family will be comforted to see the good care their child is getting from the nanny. Moms leaving home to return to work after having a baby are understandably the most anxious about leaving their infant in someone else’s hands. Imagine how reassuring it can be to see that your child is being well cared for and love? Priceless.
