Should parents tell caregivers about their nanny cam

Would You Tell Your Nanny About the Nanny Cam?

Nanny cams provide worrisome parents with a bit of relief — especially after hearing some of the horror stories of bad nannies caught on camera. Once it's set up and ready to go, video monitoring parents need to decide if they are going to let the sitter know he or she's being recorded. As long as the mama follows video and audio surveillance laws, she doesn't legally have to inform her child's caregiver of the camera in her own home.

So what do you think — would you inform your nanny that she's under your watchful eye?
