Letting a stranger into your home is a big step. Firstly, you’re leaving them with your children and secondly they have access to your valuables while you’re out of the house. While agencies run police and background checks on nannies, parents often want greater assurances.
What is Nanny Watch?
For many parents, hiring a nanny isn’t a luxury – it’s a necessity so they can go back to work and afford to pay the bills. But to give them ultimate peace of mind, many hire a private detective to watch the nanny or install a nanny cam.
A nanny cam is a observation camera, designed to watch people in your home when you’re away. It’s typically installed in an everyday item, such as a teddy bear or microwave.
Observation cameras can be controversial due to privacy concerns, so it’s important to understand the pros and cons before taking this option.
The Benefits of Nanny Watch
The main benefit of installing a nanny cam is knowing your children are safe. Most nannies are model professionals, but there’s always an exception. Installing a nanny cam is a form of home security system – you might trust your neighbours, but with high-value goods in your home it’s always good to have confirmation that they’re safe.
Even if your children aren’t in danger, nanny cam gives you the means to monitor how your nanny behaves – whether he or she is watching violent movies in front of your children or playing on Facebook all day long.
The other benefit is that you can watch your children while you’re at work – so you won’t be missing those precious ‘first time’ moments.
If you feel uncomfortable about spying on your nanny, you have the choice to advise them you have cameras installed – some nannies welcome this for their benefit, and so you can see the great care they’re giving your children.
