I really, really don't know any men who 1) would have any interest in babysitting and 2) I would trust with an infant. My brothers in law might help my sisters babysit, but by no means would they be the primary caretaker. I'm sure it would be different if I had brothers or knew any responsible men who liked kids.

Men do become fathers you know

So you BILs "help" but are not capable of watching their own children??

Yeah, my biological brothers are the only dudes who I'd trust with my baby. One of them raised four of his own and he LOVES babies, and my little bro is a state approved foster parent and takes care of poor little crack babies. My dad is totally trustworthy, but he really can't stomach diapers. Like, he'll vomit for real. lol

I know... I know... but my babydaddy would NOT be jumping to keep my nieces and nephews for weeks on end! That would probably be a nightmare for him. I just think a strange man, who is eager to watch toddlers for weeks, is a weird thing.

My BILs will watch their kids for the day, but again, won't be begging to watch my baby all day long alone. I'm really not trying to be sexist but that's how it is for me, personally. I'm not saying it's bad to have a dude babysit kids but they're rare. I was never babysat by a man alone - except for my Dad.

Who has someone watch their baby or toddler for weeks in the first place? Unless you mean a regular daily babysitter thing...in which case I think men can like babies just as much as women.. Maybe I've just known baby liking guys, lol.

^ This, barring some medical treatments that requires long term stays in a hospital or messes up you immunity (like chemo).

Regardless of the mom's bad decision though, that guy still needs to be d-e-a-d.

I've got extra confidence in my bros because they're way older than me and used to babysit me all the time. They're super fun, kind, and just really good with kids. They're expert at spoiling kids and making sure the kids have an awesome time. Plus they never molested me. I'd rather leave my kids with them than a strange woman.

Dead is too easy for these guys. Once the other men in prison find out that they are molesters its pretty much hell on earth for them.

Awful..just awful. Words don't even describe. Those people deserve more than a quick death.

and to think.. I used to think my parents were NUTS for screening nannies so closely and having security cams set up in the house.
Now it doesn't seem so far-fetched!

Note to all parents from someone who babysits a lot.. get one of these.

It's $100 and you can check up on your kid on your phone/any internet connection and it records.
