New Job

Hi Everyone,

I just got offered a job at a local hospital.  I was a stay at home mom to my 3 girls.  I start on Monday.  It is not full time, but at least 3 days a week.  I am a little nervous because it is going to be tough work - pediatric and neonatal intensive care unit.  I mean I will be fine but I have been home so long.  

Now I need to find childcare for my kids, but I was thinking since they play tennis, I should find a tennis coach instead of a nanny so that they can continue with tennis when I am not around. I was their main tennis coach.  

I am nervous about that too.  How do I know I have found the right person. These days there are so many stories about girls getting molested by male coaches.  Female coaches can do the same thing too though.  

Even if I do background checks and live scan, I still don't know what I am getting right?  Any ideas or tips on how to hire a quality individual.  My girls are 13, 12 and 8.

Thanks for reading. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

 I don't know that you can ever be 100% sure of what/who you are getting. You have to trust your instincts and your kid's opinions. Good luck to you and congratulations on your new job. You'll do great!

Wow that's such a scary thought. A prominent French coach just got sentenced to 8 years in prison for raping two girls aged 13 and 12. And during his trial 20 others came forward to tell their story.

Makes me so sad!
