Parenting comes with a plethora of unexpected obstacles and surprises; some of the biggest surprises arrive in the form of bizarre nanny cam moments. The worst things seen on nanny cams can send a parent scrambling for their child's crib, while weird nanny cam moments might have them reconsidering the new babysitter. When parents buy a nanny cam for their child, they typically expect to see lots of crying and thumb sucking. Imagine their shock, then, after their nanny cams reveal kids acting creepy, or worse, the babysitter or guardian acting creepy. But not all of the strangest or worst nanny cam moments deal with only parents. Babysitters often witness strange things themselves on nanny cams, and sometimes people are using nanny cams to watch over their home or pets, not necessarily children.

These nanny cam stories and incidents detail times where this voyeurism led to both hilarious and horrifying incidents. The best of Blumhouse, Warner Bros, or Netflix can't match the dynamic drama of the simple and unassuming nanny cam. Vote up the most shockingly unexpected captures these nanny cams made.

    A Will And A Way

    From TooPrettyForJail:

    "Using a baby monitor to care for aging parent. My sister comes in and tries to convince my dad to cut me out of the will and give everything to her."

    It's A Dog-Eat-Dog World

    From crushing2013:

    "Buddy of mine had a kid at the beginning of last year and discovered that both his cat and his beagle would climb into the crib with the baby occasionally during naps. Cute right? Both animals made it a habit to climb in, kick/push the baby to the very side of the crib and curl up in the middle completely alone.

    You'd catch them glaring at the kid if he started to roll back over and invade their space."

    Noisy Neighbors

    From Pineapplespaceman:

    "When my niece was around four years old I had her stay for a weekend while her parents went away. They loaned me a baby monitor because I sleep like the dead and probably wouldn't hear her from my attic bedroom if she woke in the night.

    I was just settling down to sleep when I heard this horrendous hacking cough over the monitor, I bolted to her room thinking that she was choking but she was still sound asleep.

    A few minutes later I heard it again but this time there was a female voice too saying 'Shhh, you will wake her up.' I charged in there again to find her fast asleep and alone.

    It was then that I realized one of my neighbors must have the same cheap ass baby monitor and I was picking that up."

    Ready To Shank Someone

    From foolseveryday:

    "When I'm home from college I babysit for these pretty wealthy people. At the time the boys I would babysit were about two years old and nine months old. It was summer and I had laid the younger one down for a nap, then took the monitor out with me to the backyard so the two-year-old could play. I heard sound going off and saw arms reaching into the crib to the sleeping baby. I grabbed the two-year-old, a knife, and slowly walked upstairs. Their grandma had come to see if I needed any help, but didn't have my number so she didn't text me she was there.

    We laughed about it but never have I ever been so ready to shank someone."
