I found myself perusing a 'Working Moms' community, and noticed a post by a mother asking whether or not she should hire a nanny who had Bi-Polar Disorder.
The answers were varied and different, and i was thoroughly suprised by the sheer amount of "NO" answers, with no attached reasons or opinions.
I wondered if many mothers would/wouldn't leave their child in the care of someone with a known disability or disorder.
There are lots of different types of childcare out there, and obviously SAHMoms, but it's hard to imagine that within the numerous amounts of day care centre, kindergarden, nursery staff and nannys, there isn't a single one with some form of mental health history or current problem.
Where is the line between Disability and Disorder/Disease? Should every parent be informed if a creche worker or support staff member has clinical, medical or just Time of the Month issues?
Just wondered what you thought....
I have personal reasons for asking, but as of this moment i don't have a specific view to voice.
