The post quickly gathered so many reactions as a lot of people came to the comment section to share their thoughts on the revelation as well as some personal experiences.
Well, well, well! Everybody is hustling out here and a little extra income cannot hurt the nanny. Apart from wickedness, there are so many other factors that we can finger in this.
I understand everyone saying getting professional nannies but I also think workplaces can be more inclusive for parents if they have a running daycare. My mum said she used the daycare within her workplace when I was a baby. Easy to check on your kids during breaks.
You can get from trusted source and pray about the person. If you have reservations in your spirit, don't do it. Ask pointed questions during interview... Finally, install camera for your house. It's worth the money. The nanny may know she's being watched, so long as she behaves

Children in a different circumstance
A disturbing video surfaced on social media showing the deplorable state of nursing mothers lying on the bare floor with their day-old babies.
The footage sighted by YEN.com.gh on the verified Twitter handle of Ameyaw Debrah was taken at the Manhyia Government Hospital in Kumasi, Ashanti Region, as the voice-over in the footage indicated.
The only layer of support that lay between the mother, their kids, and the floor in the video were thin cloths instead of comfortable mattresses at least.
