How well do you trust the person who cares for your child while you're at work?
A shopper at the Target in Mountain View submitted a post to a blog called I Saw Your Nanny about what she felt was a "mother’s worst nightmare."
According to the post, the shopper found a crying little girl named Hannah who yelled out for her nanny Enrica. After soliciting the help of a Target employee, who paged Enrica through the loudspeakers, the nanny appeared from six aisles over. The shopper continued:
Enrica’s reaction? She rolled her eyes, and said, "You knew where I was. Stop crying." in an annoyed tone. No shock at the realization that Hannah had been lost. No concern or apologies or thank yous. Just an eye roll and scolding the girl.
For sure there are outstanding nanny's out there, but nevertheless an industry has arisen of parents who spy on their child's caretakers with things like nanny cameras.
And the tragic death of the two children of former Bay Area executive Kevin Krim in New York slain by their nanny, probably heightened many parent's anxiety level.
