Do you think that baby sitter are helpful in the growth of your family? My Auntie has two maids and one baby sitter. My auntie has no time for her daughter, because she has alot of things to do. She goes Tai chi every morning, pay her bills, get along with friends when there is an event. I pity my cousin (my auntie's daughter), because she can not feel the loving of her mother. When my Auntie come home from her work stuffs, my cousin can not play with her mother because she knows that her mother is tired. Thats why, my cousin and her babysitter are very close with each other. When her babysitter came in her life, she is always happy and she is not crying anymore. She also calls her babysitter her "mommy". I dont know what side is right. A babysitter or a Mother?

I think what your Auntie is doing is rather extreme. When I was little Mom would hire a babysitter if she and Dad were going out for the evening, or if thery had an all-day event to attend, but it wasn't very often. They were home most days and nights. Babysitters, in my opinion, are only if parents are at work, or if they have to attend another event, not to RAISE the chld, as your Auntie is allowing.
