Areyou the one taking good care of your kids?

Yup, I'm the one taking care of my kids. It's not that I'm afraid a babysitter will hurt them, do something to them or neglect them.. on the contrary.. research tells us that more accidents and deaths happen in the home when the PARENTS are there than when another care giver is present.. I stay at home with my kids because I HAD KIDS.. I didn't have them to pawn them off on someone else to look after so that I could still live a life. I had kids, and I should be the one taking care of them.. not someone else.

Yes i am taking good care of my son. I am too afraid to let anyone realy take care of him. i think it is because i could of lost him through an opperation he needed that i am scared of letting him go. I have had him babysat a couple of times after the opperation but i feel as though i am missing something or something has happened. he is my first child i do trust other people who mind him. Just something doesnt feel right when he is not with me. As if i am scared that he will get hurt if i am not around.

It is prety scary these days to leave a child with a sitter. My daughter was in a few different loving at home (from moms who work at home) day cares who were wonderful to her from when she was a baby on up. The last sitters my daughter had, was a girl about 20 and her parents. Her family was Turkish and all about family and kids. They wre sooo wonderful to her. I met her and her family from a a little part time job I also had in which I did part time child care in a gym and my daughter went with me, I worked with the girl and trusted her. I worked the overnight shift at my other job. I liked that because I am a night person and I would be home all day long should my child get sick at school and need me to come get her and I was able to take her to and from school. I dropped my daughter off at nighttime and she had a nice time there with the family and than she would go to sleep. By the time she woke up i was right there ready to take her to school. :) It worked out very well and I trusted them 150%. I moved out of state and I have made a few aquantences but nobody that I would trust to watch my child. I don't want to put an add in the paper or anything else and I am even scared to put her in afterschool programs. I thought it was going to be wonderful out here. It is a beautiful state. Sadly, loads of pedophiles and child molestors, shootings. amber alerts. Just look up Fox 10 news .com :( So I have just been working at home. I am taking some classes in my career field and have a few big ones comming up, but I don't think I will work outside until we move. We are doing loads and loads of research on a few places and my husband is going to go visit them this summer. I could if I wanted to coordinate with my husband to be home with my daughter whilst I work outside, but his job.. he is on call alot.
