Are you friend or foe?




If anyone has seen the movie “The Nanny Diaries,” you may be familiar with the scene where Annie the nanny discovers the hidden nanny-cam in the eye of a teddy bear and decides to let off some steam in a kind of nanny-cam confessional, using the device as a tell-all to report everything that is wrong with the parents’ way of raising their son.

While the scene is humorous, it also brings up the more serious question of whether or not parents should be installing nanny-cams to monitor their babysitter’s interactions with their children. Is it necessary and is it legal?
