Should I be concerned that my nanny is covertly taking photos of my child? We hired our nanny six months ago to watch our infant, and she had excellent references and a clear child abuse/criminal background check. She's been a pleasure to us and our baby loves her. The other day, my husband came home early and walked into the family room where Nanny was taking a photo of our baby. Nanny seemed like she was taken off guard and pushed the camera away so as to hide it. My husband didn't say anything to her at the time, and now I'm left wondering how to broach the subject. I feel weird about this, because on the one hand, we didn't catch her doing anything that is clearly inappropriate or hurtful, but on the other hand, why is she secretly taking photos of my baby? Should I be concerned about this? What do you think is the best way to sensitively and effectively bring this up to Nanny?
