Quiet Babysitters Can Be Dangerous

When the incidences of missing jewelry started to get out of hand and as such I decided to hook up a baby video monitor in my childs room along with a few gold necklaces placed about in the kids’ room.

When you think of a babysitter you think of a younger girl who is of course responsibly, sometimes a bookworm and someone who is mature for their age, if you are younger than 16 years old even if you hold these skills it’s hard to find work, so instead these teens look to babysit.

When I hired my babysitter she met all those qualifications as well as some other qualities. She was actually holding a part-time job as well at the local McDonald.

Because of her kitchen experience as well as growing up in a household with 4 little brothers to care for she was also able to prepare meals for my children and keep the house clean and tidy on top of just watching the kids, which was a plus.

Now I had this girl babysit my children for a long time, she would come over every day of the week, for two hours to fill the gap between when I left for work and my husband returned, we paid her 5 dollars an hour to watch two children which was the going rate and if we needed her on short notice we would always give her a bit extra.



Suddenly I began to notice things went missing, just small things at first, pieces of jewellery and the like and I thought nothing of it, maybe they were misplaced or something of that nature.

Well after doing this I caught the babysitter red-handed picking up a necklace and placing it in her pocket, and if that wasn’t enough, she opened my daughters piggy bank which we have given her 20 dollars since she was born to go towards her collect education, and she proceeded to grab a large handful of money and place it in her purse!

I was outraged, especially with regards to her stealing from my daughter’s college fund.

If it wasn’t for the baby video monitor that I had I would have never been able to catch her, needless to say she no longer works for us, and we exercise extreme precaution when it comes to selecting future babysitters and keep the video monitor on constantly.
