Nanny cams /dropcam

My friends just installed a nanny cam, which really surprised me as her nanny is lovely and the kids adore her. However, the more women I speak to, the more it seems like this is a totally normal thing to do. I think it starts the relationship off on the wrong foot, I wouldn't hire anyone I didn't fully trust to look after my kids and don't feel comfortable spying. BUT, the 'mom guilts' kicking in that I'm being irresponsible not having one?! Am I being too trusting? Would love your advice!

My daycare doesn’t have cameras and I don’t even feel the need to drop in unexpectedly! I wouldn’t leave my child with someone I felt I needed to spy on, but I think they are fairly common.

Most child abusers are trusted friends or family. No one should be offended by you doing things to protect your kid just in case of abuse. It doesn't mean you don't trust them, it just means that you won't let that trust keep you from making wise decisions regarding your child's safety.

I won’t use one. I feel it’s a breach of privacy! If you have to monitor your children’s child care when you’re not home you probably need a different child care provider.

I’ve got two installed in our home... I don’t feel bad at all about checking it throughout the day.
