In the world today, it is often necessary for both parents to be in the workforce in order to earn enough to raise a family and give our children what the need. When a family has young children, going out into the workforce can be a stressful time. Finding a nanny to care for young children often leaves parents, especially mothers who do not want to leave their children in the care of someone else, wondering what is happening in the home and if the child is being cared for properly. You can interview a hundred nannies, and choose the perfect one.
It is a sad but true fact that most people can no longer just go with their gut when it comes to providing care for their child. The days of just asking a few basic questions of the grandmotherly woman that is going to watch your child are pretty much gone. And, while you may be good about checking references that still does not mean the person you are considering hiring to take care of your child is the right one for the job. Of course, checking references is an absolute must when considering a person who will be in charge of protecting and helping your child when you are not around.
You can fit these nanny cameras practically anywhere. The Boom box spy camera is very useful as the boom box is portable and can be shifted to any place in your room. Wireless cameras hidden in books are another popular option as nanny cams. The list of nanny cameras seems endless. Some other objects that can act as hidden cams are computer speakers, lamps, emergency lamps, smoke alarms, VCRs and purses. Your choice of camera will depend on your requirements including the layout of your home, the distance at which you will be monitoring the images and whether you require recording of these images.
Everyday objects, such as alarm clocks, picture frames and smoke alarms, can contain these types of cameras and are virtually undetectable and some of these will even record audio. These may be wireless security cameras operating independently with their own power source and data storage compartments, while others can be setup for remote monitoring. Setting up your monitoring system is simple and can be done using almost any type of wired or wireless security cameras. A nanny cam can be placed discretely in every room of your home to record just how your nanny interacts with your child or children.
Some would argue that it is an invasion of privacy and a lack of trust between employer and employee. Trust is something that is established over time, and until you feel that you can trust your nanny, then you should use the nanny cam. If the nanny feels that it is an invasion of privacy, then you should question her reasons. Our children are our most precious commodities. They love and trust us to take care of them. It is ultimately our responsibility to make sure that their nannies are taking care of them properly when we are forced to go out and work.
