My best friend ALWAYS laughs at me when I am shocked that someone wants to run a background check on me or would like to call a few of my references. I just can’t seem to wrap my brain around why.
Why don’t they trust me? Don’t they know I LOVE children? Who better than me?
I know this sounds a bit strange or a bit condescending even. But to me, it’s neither of those things. I am genuine in my love for children. It hurts me sometimes that people can’t see that about me.
But as good friends often do, my BFF constantly reminds me that these day people have to be extra careful in who they bring around their children. You NEVER know what a stranger might do to a child.
After posting the article about How To Find a Nanny Using a Working Interview, I received a comment that seems to be an all too common sentiment from moms. Linda says,
“Great Advice for someone like me who is never comfortable leaving her children. This would also work great when interviewing for a babysitter “.
Her comment makes me wonder what makes you as a parent uncomfortable about having a babysitter or nanny care for your children?
It’s clearly hard for me to be objective on this, so I’d love to hear your thoughts about it.
I’d also like to hear what HELPS you to become more comfortable with the idea of someone, who is not a family member, caring for your children?
