  • make surprise visits..If I was that worried I would pull them and find someone else. This is always the biggest fear with child care. I have a home sitter but I always try to pop in early whenever I can and I never call. I trust her but you never know! I ask my older kids about how she treats them or if they get in trouble ask them what she did or said. I feel bad because I trust her but these are my kids most precious cargo I have! LOL

  • If you've got a gut feeling, listen to it and switch sitters a.s.a.p. do not wait for 'proof'. Follow your instincts.

  • Tell me you didn't just suggest allowing those children to be harmed just to get proof of abuse.  ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR MIND?  THAT IS MESSED UP.  Get those kids out of that daycare and call the police.  Who cares if it starts problems.  The safety of your friend's kids and the other children there is in danger and someone has to protect them.

  • If you have any suspicion, then just change sitters.
    Talk with the children. Just change sitters. Period.
