Talking with Your Child’s Babysitter or Nanny about Safety

You are a safety-conscious family.  You have first aid kits throughout your home.  You have childproof locks on all doors, windows, and cabinetry.  Hazardous substances (i.e., bleach) are kept under lock and key, safely out of your child’s reach.  How do you communicate your stance on safety to your child’s babysitter or nanny?

2.      Discuss with the babysitter or nanny the proper use of your safety supplies and devices
