Okay, you've worked up the courage to leave your child under the care of a semi-responsible stranger whom you've interviewed and thoroughly Facebook-background-checked for nanny red flags. You feel safe and confident. Good for you! Don't read this list.
Well, actually, do read the list, because it's always good to know what to watch out for. Bottom line: none of these bad babysitters would have made it into The Babysitters Club. From babysitters that have fed children glass sandwiches, to nannies that told children they were "evil" because they wrote with their left hands, this list of babysitter horror stories will absolutely terrify you. It seems the best way to scar your child is to head out for the night and hire someone to look after them. And the babysitters aren't the only ones with problems. Sometimes it's the kids who do the emotional (and physical) scarring. No one is safe on this list!
Most of these babysitters could be in the running for worst babysitter of all time. Before you post to Craigslist offering up prime nanny jobs in your household, make sure their kit of babysitting games and supplies comes with basic common sense. Or even better, consider just staying home with your kids every night until they turn 18. Hey, it may be the safest option.
