There has been various types of abuse in my family in the past. I've never met my father or his side of the family. My mother's side is almost gone - save for an uncle. My 39 year old sister and her 27 year old boyfriend babysat my first son ONCE. I texted her, no reply. I called her. No answer. I immediately returned home. I was gone for 1 hour. When I arrived, my son was completely re-dressed head to toe. When I asked what happened, she said he was wet with pee. I had changed him before we left. I checked his clothes. They were only slightly damp, around the neck line from drooling. (He was teething) I never asked her to babysit ever again. I let my best friend since kindergarten babysit both boys once for a couple of hours, I trust her completely. She even used the time to teach her teenage daughter how to babysit! I know to get a nannycam and explain it is there if I have anyone watch them again, but what about when they start school? I would home school, but I don't want them to miss out on friendships and life experience but seriously, every day on the news is something new and terrible, even unthinkable. I cry for infant and toddler victims when I hear the news. How will I ever let them go to school?
