i mean the caretaker could be your spouse, your mother, dad, friend or even a person u have employed. could you trust them with your kids and would you do it? do u think it would be possible for you to leave the house and the kids gome with someone for something like 4-5 days?

i would definitely have no problems but am sure the caretaker will not be able the baby.. and then why get into a situation when the caretaker has to call u back from ur tour the he/she is not able tohandle the situation .. so u see that trust is not a problem inthis case but managemant is .. that is child management.. i think four line are complete..

When My boys were young I would have and did leave them with my mum and dad , I would trust them with my life and theirs , I used to watch my grandchildren when they were young and my son used to say " I know I dont have to worry when the girls are with you " I knew he felt that way but it was still nice to hear him say it , with strangers? no never xx

I would leave my girls with their dad for a few days. I know they would be fine. And also with my mum and dad and also my sister. However I don't think I would want to. I would miss them a lot. I am getting more used to leaving them at their dads for the weekend, but I do get lonely on my own without them.

Oh yes I could leave my children with a caretaker, and yes I could trust them with my children no problem otherwise I would not leave them there in the first place, I have already done it many times. Yes I can do this as well.

On an exigency, for a few days, yes. But it cant be a regular practice. it is always better if you avoid leaving your kid with a caretaker. Take him whereever you go, if it will not create a big problem.

You know, i would leave my kid with my husband, if it is maid, i cannot trust anybody except my husband. Iam a mother of one, and iam a working mother, i leave my son with mother In-law in a day time. But if i have to leave my kid for more than a day, iam sure i will not, i can trust my husband more than my mother inlaw.
