but ksl, by assuming the reasons people need to leave their children in the care of others is to simply accumulate wealth, your above quote is completely judgemental. Not to mention self righteous. You also mentioned earlier something about parents that abuse their kids. And, er... yeah...? Whats your point there? Who said that wasnt abuse?
I don't assume anything and that's my point! You people are doing all the speculating not me....
And when i say its the parents responsibility, to ensure their child is safe, one can only minimise the risks, even if the person is a professional with credibility, there is still risk....most maids are not qualified to look after children, so why would you expect them to do a good job of it, beats me, especially a child of that age too.
Anyway, I find the discussion rather pointless, it's hardly constructive, to resolve any problems of this nature, and looks more like a witch hunt.
I disagree, child abuse doesn't recognize a degree or a paycheck. You think she's more likely to abuse a child because she is poor and uneducated? No way...
I never said it did....although if one parent was home, then maybe the episode, would never have happend.
Why is it, that many employers of maids, take it for ganted, that they have to do everything in the house? The fault also lies with the employers, unless she does have a professional qualification for child care, which i doubt very much.
I would never have left my baby, with a stranger or my maid, unless i had 100% faith in her!
These people did not have that, hence the camera, although they was still willing to risk the babies health.
Nothing more to be said here, from me anyway!
