I had a mother to mother chat with my friend, Lissa. She has a 2 year and a half toddler that she leaves behind to a babysitter. Both she and her hubby go to work and have no relative to fill-in while they’re out 9-10 hours each day. She shared her worries in entrusting her baby to someone she doesn’t really know…apart from the 2 month training period. Not that the caregiver is not trustworthy…it’s just that the world is now filled with the evilness that makes you worry to the extreme if you’re one of the unlucky ones to be a victim of kidnapping or incompetency leading to having your child get hurt, if not dying.
The media covers different stories of such and it makes a parent more uneasy of what may happen to their children when they’re not within arms reach. It is difficult to ease up knowing things like this happen…but then again, what can we do?!
One thing we can…entrust everything else to the Lord! Because we really cannot tell what is bound to happen…if it is His will. Of course we do our part doing background checks, proper training and instructions and continuous follow-ups.
