I am genuinely protective over my children, but perhaps it’s my own paranoia, after seeing so many horror stories of parent’s rare children being snatched away, never to be seen again.
A parent’s worst eveningmare; Because of this, I am extra picky about who gets to be around my children, however only close family and friends are allowed to be around them alone.
I don’t trust even extended family. I suppose I am entirely overthinking things, however you can never be too safe when it comes to your kids. Anyways, babysitting became quite an issue for me because of this, because my family can’t consistently look after them, and as a single parent, I have to work while all of us were in the day to make a residing. A year ago, my best friend’s child Michelle provided to babysit for me. I don’t suppose Michelle well, so I had to talk and get to suppose his first before I dared let his be around my kids. When I first let his babysit, I required my best neighbor to be there as well, but my best neighbor assured me that it was fine, and it turns out he was right. Michelle turned out to be a wonderful babysitter, and genuinely mature for his age. The only thing I absolutely do not like about Michelle is that he consistently messes with the Heating and A/C system while I am gone. My best neighbor tells me he does this at condo as well, so I guess he is just sensitive to hot and cold temperatures. I’ve told his not to touch the Heating and A/C thermostat, despite the fact that he usually does anyway. I don’t mind this too much, since he is a single of the few people I trust. I just have to remind myself to turn the Heating and A/C unit off when I get home. Apart from the heating and cooling complications, Michelle is the perfect babysitter.
