I have a new babysitter that I use for only times when I will be gone for two hours or less. She is the daughter of a friend. When I met her she was 12 by now probably 13 years old. I'm not sure if it matters or not but she is not from a well to do family ( her parents are recovering additcts, and mom is sick most of the time) and I don't know them all that well. Well enough to feel comfortable with her in my home and with my kids, but not to say if she would be capable of stealing from me. I cannot say what type of morals she has regardless of socioeconomic status. I also am on a very tight budget so please don't think I 'm judging. I'm just saying it may have some bearing on the facts.
Anyway, the second time I had her over, I noticed a few days later that my tablet was missing. Not just that but the charger too. I have turned my house upside down looking for it. My laptop bit it and I've needed something for internet purposes. I have been relying on my phone as of late but it's a pain.
So, what do I do? I have not asked her back over, mostly becuase I have not needed her but there were a few times I could have called her and didn't becuase I am not sure if she took it or not. I have not had any other company to my house except my grandmother who wouldn't even know what a tablet is or how to use it so it really doesn't leave anyone else.
Do I ask her? Obviously with absolutely no proof whatsoever I cannot, nor would I, accuse her. Do I just chalk it up to a loss? Like I said though, I'm on a budget and those things are expensive,
