Daughter is 1yr 6mo
Without going into specifics. Mom and father are not together. Shared custody.
We recently changed babysitters. Twice. First time was because the friend we were using started charging more and was on the other side of town.
Second sitter started college and her school offered daycare for students with children.
Third sitter who I didn't want but she said it was fine. This person has questionable choices in men. Drug users, alcoholics, violent. Plus she didn't pay is when she has my ex watch her kid.
Fast forward to today she has been there for a month now. Dropped her off and she cries bloody murder and was trembling like she was scared. Latched onto to me and would not let me go. Her mom picked her up and she noticed a sever diaper rash. To the point the rash had sores like a scab that was picked. Took her to the doctor and he said it looked like a staph infection.
Today same thing. Except this time she cries and shaking was worse. I find out she has a male roommate whom we have never met and that worries me. I myself am a victim of sexual abuse and my mind went right there as I am driving to work. I have been scared all day to the point where I am almost going to leave work to go get her.
To you parents out there how would you respond to a situation like this? Am I just over reacting because of my own abuse? Or am I justified in worrying.
