Whether your kids are with a full-time nanny or you just use a babysitter (or grandparent) for an occasional date night, creating a social media policy is an important consideration. It could be a formal written contract, or just a short discussion, but either way, it’s definitely something to decide on before you leave your child in the care of someone else these days.
Are you okay with them taking photos and videos of your kids and sharing them on Instagram? What about checking in at a certain location while they’re with your children? Should you friend your nanny on Facebook?
We’ve got a helpful list of considerations and tips for creating a social media policy for your babysitter, nanny, or childcare provider that can help ensure your family’s privacy is respected.
