Bad nanny/babysitter experience

Dear fellow parents,

Please be aware when engaging nanny.

I just terminate my service with her after a mere few months. She is very scheming, calculative and lazy.

After the first month, everyday when we fetch our child, she will nag at us and scold the baby in front of us, saying the baby dun want sleep and cause her no time to watch tv ( isn't her job to look after baby?)

She also insist that the baby must be collected by 7pm, even though we left the baby at 8am and the agreement was for 12 hours care.

What's more, the baby was found with rashes and was not cleaned or bath properly everyday. Baby also wake up in fright every night crying.

We asked her to apply cream on the rashes, she objected saying she dun do such stuff.

Final straw was that when we ask her about the rashes, she shouted at us and say she dun know anything and then keep scolding us saying we are lousy parents and that she is doing a favor for us ( though she charged 750 per mth ).

Please be warned and dun be silly like us to be duped by unscrupulous middleman, who insisted we take her immediately

I think I know who the nanny is! You should file a police report for the bruises and pinch marks. It's ridiculous to treat a defenseless child this way.

Thank you! As of now, still uneasy over sending bb to nanny after that super scary experience. I agree no agents, they anyhow intro nanny without screening and only want your commission...

When you interview a nanny, ask nanny to show you how she change diaper for your bb, or make a bottle of milk or food ask her to feed on the spot so you can gauge if her method you are ok with..these are some tips i can think of as an employer to find a potential nanny for a child..

Coward! Why dont you state the exact name and address if its true. Are you sure you all didnt have an agreed stated time that? I suggest that you should really make a police report to get yourself compensated if its real. Using the power of internet to ruin the person name Is low class. We are in Singapore and probably the caregiver is depending on the money earn for the family please dont be selfish and do this kind of low class act, it only reflects what kind of person you are and at the same time unintentionally create a false sense of danger to those new mums-to-be. Low class act of anger. I think you better close the thread if you are rational

Criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication
507. Whoever commits the offence of criminal intimidation by an anonymous communication, or by having taken precautions to conceal the name or abode of the person from whom the threat comes, shall be punished with imprisonment for a term which may extend to 2 years, in addition to the punishment provided for the offence by section 506.

I suggest that you take sometime to read on the seriousness of the offence. Ignorance doesn't not mean your are not guilty. Why give yourself unnecessary trouble? Just make a report, i'm sure the police will do the job.
