On My Mind Lately

It has become the norm in our society to have house keepers and nannies living at our homes. Its almost impossible to see a house with no maid in Kuwait. A lot of those house keepers or nannies , not all of them of course, are uneducated and come from a very rough life conditions. Some of them were abused and mistreated in their country and might have lots of psychological issues. We don’t know anything about  them or their back ground. And there we are having them in our houses living among us  and trust them with the most precious things we have “our children”.

Over the past few years we have heard the most horrifying stories about nannies abusing children sexually and some stories ended with the house maids murdering innocent babies. I have seen maids with an infant at the general hospital dropped by drivers to get a treatment for that ill baby! we have seen drivers abuse children in malls accompanied with nannies, no parents! babies are left every day all alone with these unqualified maids for long hours with no supervision.

Please note that the nannies job is to help us. Not to raise our children  this is our job. Don’t ever trust them 100% with your babies. Do not leave them with nannies all alone in houses unsupervised, ever. It would be a lot better to leave them at daycare if you have to work, at least they will be safer there with a lot of peoples to watch over them. if you had to leave them at home and had no choice but to do so ,you can always put nanny cams and feel free to tell the nanny that they are being watched.

Our children are the most precious things to our hearts, they are our responsibility, and if they got harmed by some one we will always be the one to blame.

The idea of this post came to me after an incident have happened to a relative of mine. She found out that her house keeper ,whom she considered to be her trusted one, stole thousands of KD’s from her safe over the year she had worked in their house.

Once again, What I’m saying does not apply to all house keepers and nannies. But here in Kuwait there are no standers or requirements of any education level for the maids that are brought into the country.Therefore you should be really careful and know who are you letting into your house and life.

All I wanted to say is please do not  give complete trust to strangers  when it comes to your children, homes and families.Please ,be safe.

  1. Excellent post. Even some Americans move to Kuwait and let unqualified nannies watch their children all day while they are at work. They are here to make / save money and want a nanny as cheap as they can find.

    I asked one co-worker if his nanny was even trained in CPR and he didn’t know. I was shocked how he could let someone watch his child without the basic safety qualifications / training. I can tell you and His are such loving parents because you are always with him. He is just the cutest thing ever and it’s obvious he is what is most important in your life. <3
