One of the toughest things you have to do as a mother is to trust someone else with your child. It's hard enough with family members and friends, but when a nanny is in charge you just hope that she or he cares for your children as if they were their own.
Sadly, that's not always the case. In an effort to keep nannies in check and parents aware, isawyournanny.com was started. People who have witnessed dangerous situations involving caretakers can report the incidents and even post pictures on the site.
While some (and probably most) of the messages are never picked up by the parents they are intended to reach, it keeps parents and nannies on their toes. The down side is some of the posts may be fabricated or describe a situation out of context which could potentially tarnish an excellent nanny's reputation. Consider all of these things, before you drive yourself crazy searching the site.
Do you use sites like this to keep an eye or ear on your nanny?
