  • I do background checks on everyone my children come into contact with. My husband even warns all his friends that I will do background checks and none of them mind.

  • Yeah, I ran a background check on my DH when we started dating. Told him I was going to. He did not mind at all.
    I have also ran background checks on everyone my ex has dated. The reasoning behind this is simple, one of his "girlfriends" was a convicted drug dealer, had been to the pen for burglary, and lost all three of her kids to the state. And this is the type of person he felt my child was "okay" being left alone with.
    So, yeah, I run background checks on anyone that is going to be a part of my child's life.

  • I've known my SO for 14 years, and I still ran one on him... lol it was a wasted of money though! The man has had only one speeding ticket, ever. that's it. lmao!

    Yes, I agree, we have not just the right but also the responsibility to make informed decisions about the people we allow access to our children.

  • I run background checks as well. I'm not risking my children's safety for anyone or anything.
