Hiring a nanny or babysitter is one of the most important decisions you’ll ever make. Pick the right one, and you know your child is in great hands when you are away from home. Pick the wrong one, and you can be headed for a tough time and a lot of questions.
Luckily, there are nanny cams to help you make certain that you hired the right person to care for you child. But we all hope that you never need one.
I recently came across an article that talks about 3 things you need to do before you hire anyone to watch your kids:
- A Face-To-Face Interview
- Get References
- Do a Background Check
While many consider these three things obvious, there are a lot of people who fail to do this. I found this part of the article interesting:
Ensuring your child is in the right hands is something you should do well before a nanny cam gets a chance to reveal something is amiss. Unfortunately, many parents don’t do their due diligence when it comes to vetting babysitters and nannies,” says Darren Dupriest, President and CEO of Validity Screening Solutions, a leading provider of background checks for employers and parents hiring childcare providers.
