So I’m in the middle of Day 3 with Nanny and am wondering if I should become one of “those” mothers. I say “those” mothers in the nicest way possible because I have nothing against them and might just turn into one. I’m talking about buying and hiding a “Nanny Cam” somewhere in my house so I can make sure that what I see, feel and experience while here with the Nanny is the same when I’m back at work.
I’m trusting the Nanny with the Beans but doesn’t that mean I should also trust that she will provide quality care for my kids without being “Big Brother” and check up on her. Such a dilemma because then what if she found the camera? Would she be insulted and leave, would she understand my neurotic craziness and chalk it up to first time parent syndrome? I went through hell to find this nanny but now am going through hell wondering if I should spy on her. That would drive me crazy if I was spied on at work.
Do you have a nanny camera? Does your daycare provider have CCTV in their home/centre? What would you do?
