It’s like having a ‘candid camera’ on your kids 24/7, but is it really a good idea? Although they’ve existed for years, daycare webcams are becoming increasingly common — forcing parents to decide whether to log in or tune out. A lot of parents worry about what goes on while they are at work when they have to leave their kids in daycare, or at home with a sitter. Security cameras can provide peace of mind, when you can simply log in and watch what is happening at home or at the daycare facility in real time. Once you open that door, do you feel obligated to watch on a regular basis? And if you are busy watching the ‘nanny cam’ how do you get any work done at the office? Is this a good idea to monitor teenagers too? A lot of questions…..
Yes, they offer a sense of security and yes, they give lonesome parents the chance to catch a glimpse of their cute babies during the work day, but are they good for anyone?
Would you want a webcam at your child’s day care?
Even after daycare, would you tap in to a webcam to watch your kids (teenagers) if you were able to do so?
