As parents, we do our best to keep our children healthy and safe. The truth is, we cannot always be there to protect them. However, there are some things that parents can do to reduce their children’s exposure to high-risk individuals. A private investigator offers valuable services that help parents identify and avoid people who may want to harm their children.
Many children spend up to ten hours a day in the care of a babysitter, daycare worker, or teacher. We trust them with our most innocent loved ones, but how much do you really know about these people? Just because a childcare center or school claims that they run a background check on all of their employees, this may not be entirely true. A private investigator will complete a thorough background check on any caregiver using databases and information that the general public may not have access to. This allows parents to have a better idea of who the person looking after their child really is.
Some parents may order a background check for other adults that routinely interact with their children. Neighbors, coaches, and youth leaders may have opportunities to be alone with your child. It is important that parents are aware of any adults that may have a history of harming children.
Once you hire a nanny or babysitter to work at your home, you may want to consider some type of surveillance to determine if they are acting appropriately around your children. “Nanny-cams” or hidden cameras in the home are a good way for parents to see what happens while their children are being supervised. A private investigator can set up a surveillance system throughout a home to allow parents full access to what goes on while they are away.
While there is nothing you can do to keep your children 100% safe all of the time, background checks and home surveillance allows parents to monitor those adults who interact with their children daily. Unfortunately, there are adults out there who want to harm your children. Staying vigilant and proactive can help you avoid high-risk situations and hopefully, protect your children from possible abusers.
