This video struck fear in the hearts of Moms everywhere.
Stephanie Merrill, the nanny caught on tape abusing 7-month-old twins, was arrested yesterday and charged with two counts of child abuse. Watching the tape got some Moms thinking about getting nanny cams too. Check out this disturbing video:
Should you get a nanny cam? We asked Nanny Stella from Fox's Nanny 911 just that. "I am not against the use of nanny cams, but I am against the use of them in secret. If you are extremely nervous about leaving your child with a stranger and initially want to ease your mind and help ensure your child's safety and well-being, then wire it up! But if you are using it to be in control and spy on your nanny and your children, then shame on you. The relationship of nanny and family is based hugely on trust. For a nanny to find out that she is being watched/taped without her knowledge could lead to the loss of a valuable member of your support system."
