What happens in your home between your babysitter and your child when you are not around?


  • … A 20-year-old baby sitter has been charged with giving a friend permission to have sex with 2-year-old twin girls she was watching in
  • Babysitter’s Abuse of Premature Triplets Caught on
  • NEWPORT NEWS- Police say Ingrid Powell left a 13-month-old boy alone for 10 hours Sunday when babysitting the child for a friend.

We all hope that the person we have selected to watch and care for our children is an honest, responsible, caring person who will keep our children safe and protected. Unfortunately, this is not always the case as these headline let us know. You can do a internet search to see these and other similar stories. Here are some other statistics you may want to know about babysitter crimes.

Babysitters and childcare workers are one of the new categories of offenders for whom specific information is now being collected within the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI’s) growing National Incident-Based Reporting System (NIBRS). The availability of these data for the first time, combined with public and policy interest, makes babysitter offenses worthy of study.


  • Babysittters are responsible for : 4.2 %  of all offenses for children under age 6—less than the percentage accounted for by other family members or strangers.
  • ·Among the reported offenses that babysitters commit, sex crimes outnumber physical assaults nearly two to one.
  • ·Children most at risk of physical assaults by babysitters are younger (ages 1–3) than those at risk of sex crimes (ages 3–5).
  • ·Juvenile offenders are accountable for nearly half the babysitter sex crimes known to police (48 % ) but only 15 %t of the physical assaults.
  • ·Babysitter offenses rarely result in death, but victims of babysitter crimes known to police are more likely than other child crime victims to suffer an injury (75 percent versus 53 percent for victims under age 6).

At one time Hidden spy cameras were only used by law enforcement, other governmental agencies or businesses because they were so expensive. However, with the boom of technology these devices are so affordable that almost anyone can now afford to purchase a hidden DVR camera with prices as low as $200.00 or less. The availability of these devices have made it possible for abusive babysitters to be caught

  • JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Hidden-camera video of a babysitter slapping an 11-month- old child, throwing things and handling the boy violently was …
  • A babysitter caught by a “Nanny Cam” allegedly assaulting a 15-month-old girl last month
  • COLUMBUS, Ohio — A New Albany babysitter was found guilty on Thursday of abusing children who she was hired to care for as more family members of her victims had to be removed from the courtroom.

The cool thing about these Hidden Spy Camera is the fact that they can came in a variety of styles. These include pen holder, radios, car remotes, clocks, pens, ties, cigarettes, alarm sensors etc. If you decide to invest in one of these devices, be sure to do your research on the picture quality, audio quality etc. After all , you need concrete proof, not a distorted blob.

When you do purchase a Spy Cam you will get the following benefits:

  • Additional peace of mind
  • Added protection for their children
  • An Additional level of home security
  • Truthful Evidence

However, don’t allow having a camera give you a false sense of security. These devices may never catch every act because of their limited field of vision or operation.. If the babysitter is aware of the existence of hidden cameras, and figure out their locations, they can conceivably find ways to avoid their reach. It is important to remember that spy cams are not a license for you to let your guard down. You should always be cautious and vigilant when it comes to protecting your children.

  5. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos
